Innovation and Adaptation on the M-PESA Rails

Abstract:

This note examines some of the savings and related services offered to the low income market segment using M-PESA ‘rails', and highlights the challenges they face. The institutions using M-PESA are working in different areas of financial services, offering savings, loans, health and life insurance, pension and investment products.

All are busy sorting out the operational issues due to integration challenges, and the difficulties of communicating the proposition to customers.
