The Huduma Number just like any other "social card" is an electronic citizen identification document with integrated payment features. The primary objective of the card is to promote cashless public service transactions, to leverage the involvement of people in the banking/government sector and to reduce the fraudulent activities associated with cash handling.

Huduma number systems provide kenyans with different resources and opportunities, including outgoing and incoming transition operations. In cases such as student scholarship, welfare grants, disaster relief benefits, insurance payments, family or food subsidies, or government agencies may disburse their social payments services via the card.
