History of Mobile Money
Mobile payment, also referred to as mobile money, mobile money transfer, and mobile wallet generally refer to payment services operated under financial regulation and performed from or via a mobile device. Instead of paying with cash, cheque, or credit cards, a consumer can use a mobile phone to pay for a wide range of services and digital or hard goods.
Mobile payment is being adopted all over the world in different ways. In 2008, the combined market for all types of mobile payments was projected to reach more than $600 Billion globally by 2013, which doubled the figure as of February, 2011.
In developing countries, mobile payment solutions have been deployed as a means of extending financial services to the community known as the "unbanked" or "underbanked," which is estimated to be as much as 50% of the world's adult population. According to Financial Access Report, "Half the World is Unbanked“
Mobile Money in Kenya:
Kenya is the world leader in mobile money. For 26 million Kenyans, the cell phone is a wallet and bank account.
They can get paid, transfer money, pay bills, withdraw cash and even make in-store purchases – no matter what handset they've/uses.
Now that is a catalyst for a vibrant mobile economy.
Of the 31 million mobile subscribers in Kenya, 83 percent (26 million users) are subscribed to mobile money services.
Safaricom’s M-PESA service was the pioneer of mobile money in Kenya, and worldwide. Launched in 2007, M-PESA now has over 20 million subscribers, which gives it over 75% of total mobile money subscribers in Kenya, and today, one quarter of the 44 billion dollar economy in Kenya runs through M-PESA.
M-Pesa—the M stands for “mobile,” while pesa means “money” in Swahili language
The Beauty of Mobile Money Services is the ability to :

All of this is achieved without needing a bank account, bank card, a smartphone or a post-paid contract.
Mobile Money In Nigeria:
The introduction of mobile telephony in Nigeria, its rapid growth and adoption and the identification of person to person payments as a practical strategy for financial inclusion, has made it imperative to adopt the mobile channel as a means of driving financial inclusion of the unbanked.
These factors underscore the decision of the Central Bank of Nigeria to issue this regulatory framework to create an enabling environment for the orderly introduction and management of mobile payment services in Nigeria.
The CBN Cashless Policy was introduced in June 2012, to ensure individuals and corporates bod's no longer make cash withdrawals above N500,000 (five hundred thousand naira) and N3,000,000.00 (three million naira) per day, respectively.
The policy stipulates that any withdrawal exceeding above limits attracts 3% penalty on the excess for individuals or 5% for corporate organizations.
For example if an individual makes a 1 million naira withdrawal, they incure 3% charge of N30,000 or N250,000 on corporate withdrawal of N5,000,000.
The movement of large amount of physical cash has become a crime and offenders will be prosecuted.
Exemptions have however been granted on withdrawals for accounts operated by Embassies, Diplomatic Missions, Multilateral Agencies, Aid Donor Agencies, Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government(revenue collection only), Microfinance Banks (MFBs) and Primary Mortgage Institutions (PMIs).
Already, individuals and corporates bodies have positioned themselves to benefit from the policy.
About 80 million Nigerians still remain unbanked or underbanked, meaning BIG business for the mobile money industry in Nigeria.
