Mary saved for 7 years to start her own M-Pesa agent business and achieve her dream of running her own business. Now, her life has been transformed – she has been able to pay for an education for two younger siblings, has managed to buy a car and build a house.
Vodafone’s M-Pesa service (literally ‘mobile money’), the world’s most successful money transfer service, is present in 10 countries and serves more than 29.5 million active users.
Known as ‘Vodafone Cash’ in Ghana and Egypt, M-Pesa’s mobile payment system was originally pioneered by Vodafone in collaboration with Safaricom, Vodafone’s affiliate in Kenya.
