Note that depositing money to your Mpesa through an agent costs zero Kenyan shillings and also registering for the service requires absolutely nothing. All you have to do is visiting any Mpesa agent carrying along your Original National ID.

Buying credit/ airtime for your phone is free. No Mpesa charges apply here even if you are sending the credit to another number. Nonetheless, buying airtime for other networks apart from Safaricom will attract a service fee.

Another important thing you should note is that you can send a maximum of Ksh 140,000 per day and the maximum amount you can transfer at a time is Ksh 70,000. This means that you will have to send Ksh 70,000 twice.
