T-kash Mobile Money is designed to simplify your life when making payments, and enables you to access your money on the go

Telkom Kenya has launched an app for its mobile money product, T-Kash, an easy-to-use application that will enable its customers to access a wider service offering on its digital financial services platform.

The T-Kash App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, the Huawei App Store, as well as the Apple Store, which is a strategic addition through which Telkom customers will access T-Kash. 

Customers currently access T-Kash via USSD code *160#.

“The launch of the T-Kash App is the culmination of extensive research on evolving customer trends, anchored on the need for simplicity, security, availability, and diversified service offering. The result is an easy-to-navigate platform that seeks to simplify a customer’s experience with respect to mobile financial services,” Telkom’s Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, Julius Cheptiony said. 

“Guided by the research data that we have collected during the development phase of this App and the feedback we shall continue to receive from our customers, we will be unveiling more service options in the coming months,” adds Cheptiony.
