By Kiruti Itimu

Craft Silicon, the Kenyan software company has pumped $3 million (Kshs 324 million) to its ride hailing subsidiary, Little for expansion.

Little will use the additional funding to launch operations in West Africa, where they are piloting the app service in Accra, Ghana.

“We have already started testing the product in Accra. Since travel may be an issue, we are taking an approach of opening a new city without visiting there. We would recruit drivers online, provide training online,” Craft Silicon and Little CEO, Kamal Budhabatti said.
