Business in Kenya is now faster and more secure with continued emphasis on online payments that have simplified transactions in Africa, ensuring that businesses accept payments from clients all over Kenya anywhere and at anytime.

Kenya’s originally cash rigid population has finally understood that it is safer and more convenient to use mobile payment systems particularly Mpesa as the most reliable form of sending and receiving money because more than 95% of the population owns mobile phones which is what is needed to transact through Mpesa as compared to banks that need various paperwork that many Kenyans aren’t comfortable with.

Mpesa handles more than half of Kenya’s GDP of 63.4 billion US dollars showing that if a business was to choose a payment option to trust in the East African nation then Mpesa would undoubtedly be the go to choice.
