SAFARICOM M-PESA INTERNATIONAL MONEY TRANSFER SERVICE
Kenyans around the world are invited to engage and be part of the new Safaricom M-PESA Interantional Money Transfer Service.
Safaricom has expanded its international mobile money transfer service. The service will allow people to send funds from more than 80, 000 Western Union Agent locations in 45 countries and territories directly to Safaricom M-PESA subscribers in Kenya.
The benefit of this partnership between Safaricom and Western Union is that the money is sent directly into the reciever's mobile phone, to the M-PESA account and can be used in various ways to access various services.
This is a first in Kenya and in the world as no other mobile money transfer service/mobile network can receive money from so many countries.
This service will give Kenyan Diasporas the benefit of affordable, faster and more convenient way of sending their remittances, and the money will be available for use immediately by the reciepient for any M-PESA transactions and can also be withdrawn as cash at any of the 24, 000 Safaricom agents in Kenya.
