For many young Kenyans, the convenience of Fuliza has become an integral part of their financial toolkit. This collaborative venture by Safaricom, KCB, and NCBA has not only eased payment woes but has also evolved to offer even more advantages. Safaricom delighted its customers by slashing daily charges for loans below Sh1000 by a remarkable 50 per cent.

Let’s delve into the key updates:

Moreover, a three-day waiver on interest has been introduced for loans below Ksh 1000, incentivizing prompt repayments.

Now, if you’re looking to elevate your Fuliza experience by increasing your limit, here are seven friendly strategies tailored for you:

  1. Frequent Use of Safaricom Services

Engage with Safaricom services regularly. This showcases your reliability as a customer and might just lead to an increase in your Fuliza limit.

  1. Timely Repayments Matter

Demonstrating responsibility in repaying Fuliza balances on time reflects positively on your borrowing habits. Timely repayments are a signal to the lender that you are a low-risk borrower, potentially raising your limit.

  1. Boost M-Pesa Transaction History

The more transactions you conduct through M-Pesa, the greater the likelihood of a higher Fuliza limit. The lender considers your transaction history and payment behaviour when assessing your creditworthiness.

  1. Maintain a Stellar Credit Score

Your credit score is a key factor in determining your Fuliza limit. Keep your credit score healthy by making timely payments, avoiding loan or credit card defaults, and ensuring a positive debt-to-income ratio.

Pro Tip: Consistent on-time payments enhance your creditworthiness, making you a favourable candidate for a higher Fuliza limit.

  1. Upgrade Your Mobile Money Account

Depending on your mobile network operator, consider upgrading your mobile money account to a higher tier for an increased Fuliza limit. Providing additional information, such as proof of income, may be required.

  1. Request a Limit Increase: Easy Steps
