About the project

The Challenge

M-TIBA is an M-Pesa wallet that channels donor funds directly to final recipient through M-Pesa. The funds are restricted for conditional spending at healthcare providers that are part of the nationwide M-Tiba network. Donors on the other hand get real-time access to real time monitoring of the funds. The donor community has had difficulties with transparency when tracking the use of funds given to recipients. Funds on M-TIBA can only be used at one of the ed healthcare providers, who form part of the M-TIBA network.

The Intervention

The mobile health wallet allows users to send, save and receive funds to access healthcare services using their mobile phones. Users can be registered through an M-TIBA agent, or self-register by dialing *253# on their mobile phones. This M-PESA wallet channels donor funds directly to final recipients through M-PESA to ensure efficiency of donor funds.

The Impact

About 50,000 Kenyans have already registered on M-TIBA. The product has become popular in Nairobi. Each week additional clinics sign up.
