By Vera Shawiza / January 3, 2017

The festive season is over and it is time to go back to school. After the long school holiday, children are now getting back to serious work; gaining knowledge to be better citizens in future. Parents are moving up and down to see that they have everything in place for their children’s education.

This is that period when as a parent, you need the bank to help you sort things out especially in terms of school fees payment and many other transactions that need to be done as schools open. The good thing is that there is no need to worry as the Co-operative Bank of Kenya (Co-op Bank) is here for everyone and at any time. The Bank is offering you a number of channels that can be used during this back to school season. These channels have been proven to be fast, safe and brings about a lot of convenience.

MCo-op Cash comes in handy and is the perfect mode to use when depositing your child’s school fees. The good thing about it is that you will have to travelling all the way to the banking hall for you to make transactions, the mobile phone is all the one needs. Some of the advantages of using MCo-op cash include the following:

  • Sending money from MCo-op Cash to MCo-op Cash if free
  • One is in a position to access quick loans on their mobile phones via the MCo-op cash at only 1.16 percent per month
  • Money can also be sent to MPESA via MCo-op cash and vice versa

When using MCo-op cash to pay for school fees from MPESA, the pay bill number is 400200. Schools can make school fees payment easy for parents by integrating their systems with MCo-op cash as they will be able to do it at the comfort of their homes.

Apart from school fees, children need shopping which will sustain them throughout the school term. Co-op Bank has ensured that one is able to pay for the back to school shopping at no extra cost through the Co-op Visa Card. The bank understands that the economy is not at its best and therefore every single coin counts. For more convenience, one can link their Co-op credit card with their MCo-op cash so as to make cash withdrawals directly from the card into MCo-op cash.

Do you remember that time when one had to travel miles so as to deposit or withdraw cash? Parents were forced to be out of their work places at such back to school seasons so as to ensure that they pay school fees for their children, but Co-op Bank changed all that by introducing Co-op Kwa Jirani agents. Here, one is able to pay for school fees without necessarily going to the bank. These agents are across the country and most definitely, there is one near you.

Those who will use any of Co-op Bank channels during this back to school season stand a chance of being rewarded with amazing prizes. Do not be left out. Check here for more details.
