most downloaded apps in kenya

Safaricom’s New M-Pesa app tops the most downloaded apps in Kenya from the Google Playstore according to a digital intelligence provider for enterprise and small to mid-sized business customers, Similarweb.

Unlike other years where social media apps like WhatsApp take the top spots, in 2021, dominating the list are mobile loan apps like Lioncash and Kashway showing the thirst for an easy source of credit for Kenyans who don’t have accounts with banks and other traditional financial institutions.
