Safaricom, Kenya’s giant telecommunications company is at it again, this time with a new product called Mali that will see M-Pesa users earn interest upon investing as low as 100 shillings and as high as 70,000 shillings.

Although the telecommunications giant has not given more details concerning the new product, Kenyans seem to already be warming up to it with the majority calling it a “gamechanger.”

In reality, Safaricom is trying to set up a digital Money Market Fund and given its M-Pesa customer base of 24 million, the move by Safaricom is set to shift ground for money market funds in Kenya.
