Kenyan ride-hailing company Little is expecting to secure about 5 billion Kenyan shillings ($50 million) in Series A funding.

Little, which is valued at about $70 million to $75 million, is seeking funds from investors and expects the funding to be finalised by mid-2019.

With the funds, Little plans to offer rides in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania from next week and plans to launch in Accra, Ghana by May.

Moreso, Little will also use the money raised to develop technology and extend to more countries as well.
