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.

"Davis notes that the graph ‘reveals an enormous amount of variation in gasoline prices. Gasoline prices average $5.26 per gallon, but range from $.09 per gallon in Venezuela to above $9.00 in Turkey and Norway.’
What’s clear is that the prices American consumers pay for gasoline fall roughly in the middle of what many others around the world pay, and quite a bit less than the global average.”
