Safaricom has also been awarding a surprise cashback to eight customers every minute, one in each region, for paying with Lipa Na M-Pesa. Merchants get 25 percent of the Lipa Na M-Pesa transaction charges as a cashback every night.

Lipa Na M-Pesa has emerged as a popular service due to its speed, ease and convenience, and it has been heartwarming hearing the different ways the service is making a difference for our customers,” said Joseph Ogutu, Chief Special Projects Officer, Safaricom.
