    M-Pesa, the pioneering money transfer service this duo launched in Kenya in 2007, now claims more than 30 million customers in 10 countries, mostly in remote areas far from banks. More than 8 million of those users are in India, where state governments are employing M-Pesa to pay pensions to rural retirees, eliminating the delays and crime risks that come with shipping cash.
