With upgrades to M-Paisa's system, M-Paisa now offers the following new benefits:

  • A separate system for bill payment and merchant payment, enabling us to expand the numbers of merchants who accept M-Paisa as a form of payment;
  • A more efficient and user-friendly system, which decreases the amount of time, required to complete a transaction; Dari and Pashto scripts increase the user-friendliness of the system. 

The service facilitates the transfer of funds using a mobile phone through Short Message Service (SMS) and an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. The IVR based menu is available to customers in Dari, Pashto and English, an important feature in Afghanistan where 70% of the population is illiterate. M-Paisa is powered by Roshan's robust mobile network which spans across 240 cities and towns in all of Afghanistan's 34 provinces.
