African microlender OKash has integrated facial recognition into its mobile app to reduce fraud and improve user experience, Kenyan news outlet TUKO reports.
A recent report by Financial Sector Deepening suggests that 73 percent of Kenyans have a mobile money account, and the country has one of the world’s fastest-growing digital economies, according to TUKO, but mobile money fraud has become a widespread problem.
