The mobile money revolution in Kenya

Download  
Summary

A core component of financial well-being is the ability to deal with unexpected events. Mobile money has influenced the welfare of households and is shaping the emergence of a new financial economy in Kenya. Although M-PESA has led to large reductions in transaction costs, there is room for further reductions in transaction costs that would benefit Kenyan households. As is often the case, the next reductions in transactions costs will also be harder to achieve, and will require new innovations and new investments.
