Since its inception in 2015, Pathao has become one of the most prominent freelance platforms in the country, especially for the youth. Today, it offers a range of services, one of them being food delivery. By 2030, over 50% of the Bangladeshi population is expected to belong to the youth, who will serve as the backbone of the country.
The reason Pathao food stands out in this case among all its other services, is because of the amount of control and freedom it gives to the young delivery guys. They are able to earn independently, completely on their own time and convenience, whilst being a student. The freedom to choose one's own working hours - the time of delivery, makes it an overall flexible process. All that the freelancers, who are mostly students, need is a cycle and a smartphone, and they are all set for work. As one of the top food delivery platforms, Pathao has thousands of daily active workers to deliver food, often before the expected time. The freelancers, who operate in Dhanmondi especially, have expressed great satisfaction, as the high amount of deliveries fetch a high income for them. Not only do the earnings help to sustain themselves, but it also helps them to contribute to their families' needs. Alongside, the satisfaction and compliments from the customers have worked as an incredible fuel of motivation for the service providers.
Through Pathao's journey of empowering the youth, the company has taken the initiative to promote sustainable economic growth, productive employment and decent work for all.
Almost all of Pathao food deliveries are made with cycles, which is a contributing factor in keeping the environment clean. It showcases how the company has adapted a green way of providing its services wherever it can. As one of the nation's top growing tech company, Pathao strives to keep its promise of making our day-to-day lives easier. With just 3 years into operations, the company has already provided countless opportunities for the youth, something it only wishes to expand.
