What PayPal M-PESA partnership means for Airtel’s Airtel Money


M-PESA keenly is what has given Safaricom enough power to be the top telecommunications giant I’m Kenya controllling more than 67% of Kenyan subscribers. Many subscribers probably don’t like Safaricom for their higher call rates but when it comes to Mobile Money transfer M-PESA is the popularly embraced and allowed mobile money transfer.

Recent developments at the MWC the Mobile World Congress that saw PayPal partnership with M-PESA alongside the America Movil will see Safaricom to newer heights.

PayPal is the payment platform that’s largely allowed and certified for online payments. So the big deal here is that Airtel will lose greatly and it can’t do anything to bring down M-PESA through their Airtel Money.
