Scope

– To introduce an instant payment system and foster the use of electronic payments in the country, Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) launched PesaLink in February 2017, a real-time interbank money transfer system. This service enables individuals to transfer a minimum of KES10 ($0.10) and a maximum of KES999,999 ($9,814.97) instantly, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. No charges are applicable for transactions up to KES500 ($4.91), after which a charge between KES10-KES12 ($0.10-0.12) is levied on every transaction. Transfers can be initiated via multiple channels, including mobile banking, internet banking, branch front offices and ATMs. The service is currently offered by all of the country’s major banks. Until October 2018, transactions worth KES87bn ($853.90m) were executed on PesaLink.
– To curb cash transactions and money laundering, the CBK issued stringent cash regulations in June 2018. The regulation mandated that all Kenyan individuals must provide a prior three day notice if they deposit or withdraw more than KES10m ($98,149.77) from a bank account. All transactions between KES1m ($9,814.98) and KES10m have to be approved by branch manager, while all transactions between KES10m and KES20m ($196,299.53) require regional branch manager approvals. In addition, individuals must also reveal the details of the transaction, including the source of the funds, recipient/payee credentials and the purpose of the transaction; they also have to state the reason for not using another electronic transfer option. This move is aimed at enhancing the traceability of bank transactions while boosting electronic payments in the country.
– In compliance with CBK guidelines, banks in Kenya have reduced interest rates on loans. For instance, Equity Bank has lowered the interest rate charged on loans to a maximum of 13% annually, with effect from August 1, 2018 – a similar move to that taken by CBK a few days before. The new interest rates are applicable to new and existing loans, as well as credit cards. Such initiatives are likely to spur demand for consumer credit, thereby driving credit card market growth.
