Felista tells the story of how M-Pesa allowed her to send vital funds to her mother to pay for healthcare while she was desperately ill. She also uses the service to send money to her father to pay for her brother’s school fees.
Vodafone’s M-Pesa service (literally ‘mobile money’), the world’s most successful money transfer service, is present in 7 countries and serves more than 37 million active users.
Known as ‘Vodafone Cash’ in Ghana and Egypt, the M-Pesa mobile payment system was originally pioneered by Vodafone in collaboration with Safaricom, Vodafone’s affiliate in Kenya.
"The most important time I used M-Pesa was when my mother was very ill."
Vodafone endorses the International Day of Family Remittances committed to providing secure, fast and competitive access to remittances through mobile money.
