Episode 25: How a Young Fearless Guinean is set out to modernize Guinea with an Uber like Company

 In podcast

As Aissatou Khairy Diallo mentioned in French “Vous n’allez jamais recontrer une personne aussi patriotic que moi” meaning you will never find someone as patriotic as her, shows the love she has for her country, Guinea. Growing up in the United States, she has always represented her country from school to her participation in Guinean associations.

A year after graduating from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, Aisssatou has decided to go back to Guinea to start a company, Cabco Guinea, a transportation company with over 20 employees now offering general transportation services such as private vehicles for hire which operates from Guinea’s airport, malls, hotels, restaurants to her client’s destination and vice versa.

With all the odds against her such as being a female entrepreneur, lack of capital, setting up the first call center in Guinea, and first time entrepreneur etc.. Aissatou has always found ways to motivate herself and come up with creative solutions to her challenges.

In this episode, we touched on her journey from the States to becoming a business owner in Guinea, how she builds the first call center in Guinea, and how she managed to initiate her transportation venture with 17 vehicles.

    I work for a multinational call Mercer and I ordered and enjoyed Cabco transport services last week during my mission in Conakry. Beside the excellent service that I did received, Miss Aissatou came to meet with me personnally and apparently she does that to most of her client to understand their needs and try to satisfy them. In my case she really did. She has a fantastic costumer care skill and attention. For her ambitions and determination, I beleive that she is one of the entrepreneur that Africa needs for its economic take off.

    I would definitely recommend that you try CABCO out when go plan to go to Conakry. VERY CONVENIENT.
