SAFARICOM MPESA CHARGES

Mpesa Charges

Safaricom is a Kenyan based mobile operator founded in 1997 as a subsidiary of Telkom Kenya. Mpesa services were launched in 2007 by Vodafone for Vodacom and Safaricom, the largest network operators in Tanzania and Kenya. Since then the network operator has expanded its services to South Africa, Afghanistan, Albania, Romania and India.

In this page we are going to look at how Mpesa charges its customers for sending and receiving money via Mpesa.
