The Central Bank of Kenya has granted ViewTech Limited (SasaPay) authorization to conduct or carry out the business of payment services in Kenya.
SasaPay will offer Mobile Money e-wallet services, which include sending money (Person to Person), agency network, cash in and cash out services (deposit and withdrawals at SasaPay agents) and merchants’ payments (businesses receive payments and pay other businesses via SasaPay platforms).
