We’re thrilled to announce a big milestone for Team Kopo Kopo. A few weeks ago, we processed our 1,000,000th payment via Lipa na M-PESA.
Our first live Lipa na M-PESA payment was for six bottles of Coca-Cola and a cup of tea on March 28th, 2012. Since that day, we’ve experienced twenty-seven consecutive months of growth and now service roughly 15,000 SMEs throughout Kenya.
We’re on a mission to change the way SMEs manage their businesses in emerging markets. 1,000,000 payments is a good start, but it’s just the beginning.
