FAQs

  • What is the main difference between M-PESA and a banking service?

    The main difference is that M-PESA is not gaining, nor passing on to customers, any interest earned on the money held in the accounts. We only facilitate money movement, and M-PESA is not a deposit-taking institution. However M-KESHO which is a subsidiary of M-PESA enables subscribers to have access to a bank account through Equity Bank.

  • How does the service work?

    M-PESA is driven by a secure application on Safaricom SIM cards. Registered customers have a menu on their phone giving them the ability to move money to other phone based accounts.

  • Is it possible for someone in Kenya to transfer or receive funds using a foreign SIM?

    M-PESA is only available on Safaricom SIMs, so only a Safaricom subscriber can deposit or send money. M-PESA uses Kenyan shillings and all of our agents are in Kenya. So whilst it is technically possible to receive money on a foreign SIM, unless the recipient is in Kenya, he cannot get at his money.
