M-paisa is a mobile money service in Afghanistan. In a country where only around 15% of adults has an account with a financial institution, M-paisa brings basic financial services to users on their mobile phones.

Users can load their M-paisa wallets with cash at agent locations nationwide and can then make domestic and international P2P money transfers, buy mobile phone top-up, purchase goods or pay bills.

Afghan telco Roshan introduced the M-paisa service to the market in 2008 in partnership with Vodafone.
