The new M-PESA app is now available for download.

The app’s development began several months ago, and testing began in 2020.

The app has so far proven to be one of the carrier’s success stories, having been downloaded over 1.3 million times, effectively making it one of Kenya’s most popular apps.

Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa and Acting Chief Financial Services Officer Sitoyo Lopokoiyit introduced the app this morning.

The presentation covered any features that we have discussed in the months leading up to 2020.

Sitoyo, for example, praised the M-PESA app’s biometrics, which secures the app with a fingerprint or face for individuals who prefer not to write their PIN code. When you first start the app and when you complete a transaction, biometrics are required.

You can also generate statements via the app, although unlike M-Ledger, which was long defunct, you can only generate statements from 2021 forward. The statements are immediately downloaded.

Safaricom is also collaborating with the financial sector to expand the M-PESA app’s mini apps. Pro Gas, MTICKETS, Minet, Madaraka Express, E-BIMA, CPF, GiftPesa, and BuuPass are among the mini-apps available in the app’s Discover section, with seven so far: Pro Gas, MTICKETS, Minet, Madaraka Express, E-BIMA, CPF, GiftPesa, and BuuPass.

The small apps can also be found on the M-PESA business app. More than 100,000 people have downloaded the business app.

Smartphones have increasingly become popular as they connect customers to more opportunities empowering them to achieve more at work, in their business, when learning, and even for entertainment. In response, we have designed the M-PESA Super App to enhance our customers’ experience every time they use the service, providing them with a simple, fun, secure, and convenient digital solution – CEO Peter Ndegwa

Finally, every 10th new M-PESA app subscriber will earn KES 500 on their M-PESA wallet over the following three days, and first-time customers will receive 500 MBs of free data.
