Benjamin Wafula from Chekata, Kakamega County, W. Wanyingi from Nairobi County and Evans Ochieng from Kitui County are the winners of the first, second and third weekly draws of Kshs. 1 Million in the ongoing Stawisha Na M-Shwari promotion.

Mr. Wafula, a father of one and a teacher at Bridge International Academies, was the first lucky winner in the promotion that was launched 2 weeks ago.

“I receive my salary through M-PESA and naturally find M-Shwari to be a convenient savings channel. This month, I deposited KSh. 500 in my M-Shwari Lock Savings account. I was at Cheka Town with my friends when I received a call from 0729333333 informing me that I had won,” said Mr. Wafula.

Mr. Ochieng, a revenue officer at Kenya Power becomes the youngest Stawisha Na M-Shwari millionaire at only 28.

“At such a young age, I’m quite excited to be a winner. M-Shwari has been a convenient savings platform that has been enabling me plan for my future. I plan to use the KSh. 1 million to pay back my HELB loan, fund for my masters and invest the balance in the M-Shwari Lock Savings account,” said Mr. Ochieng.

The Stawisha Na Mshwari promotion is aimed at rewarding MShwari customers for their continued use of the platform.

The promotion will see over 3,000 lucky customers win more than KSh. 50 million over 6 weeks and aims to instill and boost a savings culture among M-Shwari customers. The Kenya national savings rate is relatively low at about 12% – 15 % of GDP due to a significant percentage of the population being previously excluded from accessing financial services.

“The aim of this promotion is to encourage more customers to save on M-Shwari and be rewarded for their financial prudence. I encourage M-Shwari customers to continue saving on M-Shwari,” said Brian Wamatu, acting Financial Services Director for Safaricom.

This is the second M-Shwari promotion since its launch in 2012. The first promotion dubbed Fanikisha Maisha na M-Shwari held in 2014 saw Paul Alfayo a 21 year old sugarcane cutter from Kakamega win the grand prize of Kshs 5 Million.
