Case study: Enabling mobile money transfer: The Central Bank of Kenya's treatment of M-Pesa


AFI case studies are developed specifically for policymakers. The cases capture the actual experiences and challenges faced by leading policymakers from developing countries as they innovate and implement new or reformational policy solutions in their country.

Enabling mobile money transfer: the treatment of M-Pesa focuses on the work of AFI Policy Champion Gerald Nyaoma and his team at the Central Bank of Kenya with regards to the M-Pesa mobile money transfer service. It covers the period of development of the M-Pesa product from concept inception in 2005 to December 2008.
