All our micro-loans are processed with no loan processing fee.
The minimum loan you can borrow is $5. Once you have proven that you can complete the repayments on time, and at the correct amounts, you become legible to access loans of higher value. The duration period for repayment of each loan is 5 weeks.
If for any reason, the principal loan amount is lost or stolen from your mobile device, as long as a confirmation message shows that you have accessed the funds, then you are liable to fully repay the loan as outlined in your repayment plan.
If you take out a loan for $5, the minimum requirement of weekly payment is $1.40. This repayment amount will increase as your loan values increase. Loans are to be repaid directly from the borrower to L-Pesa. As a borrower repays the loan, L-Pesa will keep a record of all repayments and shall provide a summary at the end of the loan period.
Failure to complete or meet your repayment deadline on time will result in a debt and a reduction of your credit score. If following 5 weeks, you have not been able to fulfill your debt, then you are required to pay $7 + a nominal fine pf $2.
Credit Score records for each loan you take are kept by L-Pesa, and if you have a registered account with L-Pesa, upon your written request, they can be availed to you at any time during the term of a loan.
L-Pesa services are currently available to customers who access postpaid services from their mobile banking providers. We are unable to release credit to prepaid customers.
