Kenyan financial services provider Family Bank has teamed up with mobile network operator Safaricom to launch Pepesha Pesa, a news service which allows Family Bank customers to carry out transfers and repay loans via their mobile phones.
The Pepesha Pesa service leverages Safaricom’s M-Pesa mobile phone-based money transfer platform. It allows customers to repay loans without having to visit a bank branch, thus enhancing financial services availability and contributing to the expansion of Family Bank’s customer base in remote rural areas.
The M-Pesa mobile phone-based transfer service allows customers to deposit and withdraw money from a network of agents that includes airtime resellers and retail outlets acting as banking agents.
