Receive M-Pesa from the UK

As you are aware you can receive money from the United Kingdom (UK) via M-Pesa.

1) Senders in the UK will provide the agent with the recipient’s name, their Kenyan number and the amount of money being sent in pounds (GBP).

2) The agent then sends the now converted money into Kenya Shillings (KES) directly to the recipient’s M-Pesa account.
