Sending money to Kenya has never been this easy. Kenyapesa is an online money transfer company established on January 2013 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The firm was formed as a way of helping Kenyans living in the Diaspora send money to their family and friends back in Kenya.


Kenyapesa is the best online money sending service as it is fast and cheap. You can easily send money to anyone in Kenya and the recipient will receive the money via mobile money, bank transfer or cash from Kenyapesa agents. Currently supported mobile money networks are M-Pesa and Airtel Money. Kenyapesa also allows you to send money directly from your bank account or credit/debit card. Delivery is usually within 24 hours of placing your order and there are no hidden charges.


Kenyapesa offers its services 24/7 over 365 days in a year. You can send money to Kenya even on public holidays. The company currently offers services in Kenya but seeks to expand its operations to other African countries soon. The main objective is to be the tunnel that flows cash from the Diaspora to Africa.


Kenyapesa uses an exchange rate of CAD 1 for KES 74.50. I mainly prefer that they change the exchange currency to USD which is fair and more common with many online money sending companies. It is obvious that USD is stronger than CAD.

Other services offered by Kenyapesa include sending airtime to a mobile number in Kenya. You do this by typing the mobile number of the recipient, select airtime amount and pay. Shortly after sending the airtime, the recipient will receive a re-charge notification.

I can recommend Kenyapesa to other people because it is safe and reliable. It is registered as a Money Service Business with Registration Number 230098279 in Ontario, Canada. It is also registered with Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) Registration Number M13879833. You are assured of safety when placing your order.
