More than a third of Kenyans live in urban centers, majority of whom live in individual rental units. The proliferation of mobile phones and mobile money services in these urban centers surpasses 80% and 91.6% respectively. However, majority of these tenants still pay rent using traditional methods either by cash or through bank deposits. Generally, bank deposits take time before reflecting on the property owners’ end while cash payments require property managers to meet with their tenants each month for the collection of rent. Majority of property owners are not able to track their tenants’ payments when the payment method is bank deposits or cash payment.
