Abstract

We define ‘business primitives’ as low-level operations from which higher-level, more complex operations can be constructed. We set out to understand what most businesses in Kenya -- the land of the ubiquitous M-PESA -- do every day that could be simplified and reinforced through software. We focused on potential functionalities related to payments and the management of payments.
