What is M-Pesa?

M-Pesa is a mobile payment system that enables users to send and receive money using their mobile phones.

The service was launched in 2007 by Safaricom, a leading telecommunications provider in Kenya. Since its launch, M-Pesa has become one of the most popular mobile payment systems globally, with over 30 million users in Kenya alone.

M-Pesa allows users to send money to any other user with a registered mobile phone number. Users can also use M-Pesa to pay for goods and services or withdraw cash from ATMs.

In addition, M-Pesa provides a platform for businesses to disburse payments to their employees and suppliers.

The success of M-Pesa has inspired similar mobile payment systems in other countries, such as Tanzania and Uganda.
