There are currently two types of M-PESA statements:

  • Full statement
  • Mini statement

The full statement shows you your entire transactions over a period of time (e.g. a month, 6 months) and is sent via email though one can also view it online. The mini statement on the other hand only tells you of the last 5 transactions made and is sent via SMS

The full statements can only go as far back as one year. If you need something that goes beyond this timeline, Safaricom advises you to get it from a Safaricom Shop or you could try the M-Ledger method outlined later in this post.

Full Statements sent to your email are in PDF format and therefore you’ll need a PDF viewer to read them. The PDFs are also secured with a password, the password being your National ID number or the one of the following original identification document that you used to register your M-PESA account with:

  • Passport
  • Military ID
  • Diplomatic ID, or
  • Alien ID,
