Going cashless is the new normal. With Covid-19 still sweeping across the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) has continued to encourage people from around the world to embrace the use of cashless transactions as much as possible.
Kenya has always been ahead of other countries around Africa and the world when it comes to financial inclusion, thanks to cashless mode of transactions such as M-Pesa and MCo-op Cash that have played a part in enabling Kenyans to transact.
