7 M-PESA is Kenya s income redistribution model Transformed from a cash economy to a digital mobile-money economy Usage by region Facts Amounts sent/received More users in Nairobi & Central region than elsewhere (remitting money from urban to rural) 2. Typical transaction size is KES (5-10 euro) 3. Larger amounts (>25 euro) are sent by a small group of people: more receivers than senders 4. Group structures play an important role in raising and saving money, often with mandatory contribution because of strong peer pressure Source: FinAccess Annual Survey 2013 Recent study: Shocks, remittances, insurance and M-Pesa, Evidence from western Kenya VU Amsterdam - Vera Nicole Ide
