MPepea (Kenya)

Kenyans Edwin Maina and Dan Munga were inspired to create M-Pepea after encountering a number of people in dire need of emergency money. The first service offered from the co-founders’ 2010 firm Raven Limited, M-Pepea offers real-time emergency credit to registered clients anywhere and anytime in Kenya. The service is geared towards corporate clients, as well as N.G.O.’s with traveling employees. All that is required is a text message listing the user’s desired amount, which the user then receives shortly afterwards.
