M-Akiba – a Government Bond offered exclusively via Mobile Phone

Safaricom’s Mpesa mobile money transfer service is by far the most successful offering worldwide in its genre; its adoption can best be described as “enormous” considering the number of businesses utilizing the service in Kenya. Recently, the service has successfully entrenched into the savings sector with “now” popular slogans such as M-shwari and KCB M-Benki. We now have M-Akiba – a Government Bond that will be offered exclusively via mobile phone courtesy of the Treasury, Safaricom, NSE and CDSC.

About M-Akiba investment service;
