Ride-hailing apps are spreading throughout Asia and Myanmar is the latest country to jump on this increasingly popular bandwagon, with the planned launch of an Uber-style service.
Mr Saw Myo Chit, a 33-year-old father of two, is a driver for a local company and earns about US$300 a month. However, with a two-week-old newborn and a wife who is taking care of the children full-time, he wanted to boost his income. He recently signed up to be an Oway Ride driver.
“I was working five and a half days a week and had Sundays off, so I joined Oway Ride. This way, I can drive and earn extra money for my family,” said Mr Saw Myo Chit. “I hope to earn more than US$150.”
