Safaricom has announced collaborations with Little and Makao, allowing M-PESA clients to access services from both companies through the M-PESA Super App, rather than having to download separate apps.
The Little M-PESA Mini App will enable customers to order for taxis, bodabodas, order from restaurants and much more. Additionally, you can use the M-PESA App to book short-term housing and holiday houses anywhere in the country using the Makao M-PESA Mini App.
You Can Now Call A Cab and Book Your Holiday From The MPESA App.
Customers who download the Little M-PESA Mini App will receive KSh. 300 off their first two rides for the following month as part of the launch. Customers who book accommodations for the next month using the Makao M-PESA Mini App will receive a 15% discount, while the first ten customers who book rentals in Mombasa will receive complimentary yatcht rides.
With the addition of the two M-PESA Mini Apps, the M-PESA Super App now has a total of 25 such apps. The SGR Mini App, flight booking Mini App, NSSF Mini App, M-Tiba Mini App, and GiftPesa Mini App for supermarkets and other retail gift cards are among the various M-PESA Mini Apps.
Safaricom is hoping to collaborate with more than a hundred businesses and organizations to offer their services and products as applications within the M-PESA Super App. These include, among other things, all county services across the country, other government agencies, eCitizen, supermarkets, and restaurants.
“For 15 years, M-PESA has connected millions of customers to opportunities though a wide range of financial services. Our next evolution focuses on enabling businesses to grow and scale through solutions such as the M-PESA Super App which empowers businesses to reach our more than 30 million customers through digital store fronts in the form of M-PESA Mini Apps.” Peter Ndegwa, CEO – Safaricom.
The M-PESA Super App has been downloaded over 5 million times since its introduction in June 2021.
