According to the CEO, Peter Ndegwa, the telecommunication company, seeks to promote financial literacy among the young ones.
The app is a channel through which parents and guardians can guide their children’s financial journey; it contains monitoring and tracking features, and parental control features such as setting transaction limits.
They stated,”It will enable users to send and receive money, buy airtime and bundles, use Lipa na M-Pesa services, and access a customized version of the M-Pesa Super App dubbed M-Pesa Go App. To safeguard users, M-Pesa Go restricts services such as withdrawing money, access to digital loans, and betting or forex payments.”
“As M-Pesa we are committed to empowering and transforming the lives of everyone, and in M-Pesa Go, we are providing a revolutionary product designed for youngsters, but with oversight by parents or guardians. Leveraging the M-Pesa Super App, we plan to introduce a financial literacy platform that will equip children with tools for managing money,” Safaricom CEO stated.
Additionally, the app contains Kodris Africa, the provider of Kenya’s first-ever government-approved program for teaching coding.
