MPESA statement: how to get your MPESA statement instantly

One of the best ways to track how you’re spending the cash you receive via Mpesa is to request for your MPESA statement.

Some institutions like banks also require mpesa statements before advancing you loans.

All you need is to register with the Safaricom mpesa statement service to access your statements.

In this article, I will be showing you how to complete the simple registration and how to request for your mpesa statement promptly.

As you will notice, the steps are easy peasy.

Best of all? You will not be charged a penny!

Let’s go:

How to retrieve your MPESA mini statement from your phone

If you want to confirm a recent transaction, you can retrieve your Mpesa mini statement.

This is a brief ledger statement with details of your latest 5 transactions.

It shows everything- deposits, withdrawals, paybill services etc. but as I have mentioned, it can only hold 5 transactions since it’s essentially an sms statement.

Here is how to obtain your mini statement:

  1. Dial *234# then press call on your phone.
  2. Select 5 (mpesa information) then send.
  3. Select 1 (mpesa statement)
  4. Choose 2 (ministatement)
  5. Safaricom sends your statement shortly via SMS.

That’s all..

How to request for your full M-PESA Statement

The full statement is sent to you via email so you will need to have an active email address.

In addition, the document is in PDF format so you’ll want to have a PDF reader or similar software installed in your phone or computer.

What to know about Safaricom Mpesa statement

Only Mpesa transactions more than 1 hour old reflect in the statement. As a result, the mpesa balance shown in the statement may not necessarily be accurate.

Even though the Statement retrieval service is free, you are not allowed to make more than 5 requests in a day.

In other words, you can only access your statement upto 5 times daily.

The 6th time you’re denied and you have to wait 24 hours.

This protects the system from abuse.
