How UNFCU Partnered With Transpay to Offer Direct Funds Transfer to M-Pesa Accounts in Kenya, Launching a Popular and Fast-Growing New Service for Its Members
The United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU) came to Transpay seeking to streamline the process of sending funds from UNFCU accounts to registered Kenya M-Pesa accounts.* The original payments structure required credit union members to send funds from their UNFCU account to a local Kenyan bank account, then from the local bank account to an M-Pesa wallet.
Enter Transpay, with a solution. By implementing Transpay’s API, UNFCU enabled members to send funds directly from their UNFCU account into their M-Pesa wallets. The new one-step process is saving UNFCU members time and money, as well as providing peace of mind which is central to the credit union’s purpose.
