Where possibly can one get airtime online without considering for instance Safaricom’s ‘Okoa Jahazi’? For most people, no quick answer may come to mind, yet for over two years now, there’s been Chura in the competitive Kenyan market.

The platform created by C4DLab’s own tech incubatees, allows the user to convert their possibly excess airtime into cash, buy airtime itself (small quantity or in bulk), switch airtime randomly between the existing networks, buy data bundles, and much more, at just the use of a mobile phone. And to be sure, the transaction is as instant as it possibly can be.

However, the above features are now old enough. The newest of their disruptive services is ‘Chura Money’. It too is comparatively fast and efficient.

Chura Money allows one to send money directly from their mobile phones, withdraw money from their Paypal account at M-pesa agents, and pay all their utility bills through M-Pesa.

The team behind the magical Chura comprises Njogu Kinyanjui, an Architectural graduate from the University of Nairobi; Byron Sitawa, an Industrial Chemistry graduate also UoN; Jack Kinga, an Engineering graduate, Stephanie Gaku, a Computer Science graduate, as well as Samuel Njuguna, all University of Nairobi Alumni.

Conduct your most needful transaction now and land the opportunity to enjoy an instant 5 per cent bonus. You will love Chura for all it is worth.
