Huge Blow To Kenyans Using M-Shwari As Safaricom And NCBA Make The Following Morning Announcement

Mobile loans have been saving Kenyans in various occasions as they don't need to go to banks and ask for loans. They also offer low interest rates for the loans customers have acquired from them . Such online money lenders include Safaricom which has M-Pesa Fuliza and M-Shwari.

Days after His Excellency President William Ruto asked Fuliza to lower their interest rates for Kenyans, M-Shwari has made several changes too. As per the new announcement made by Safaricom and NCBA, Kenyans will have to pay an interest according to the money he earns. Different pricing for different people.

Risky borrowers will pay more to access M-Shwari loans as Safaricom and NCBA Group plan a new lending model with different charges based on the credit profile of customers.

For M-Shwari, it will mark a departure from the current model where it charges a flat rate of 9.0 percent—loans fees of 7.5 percent and excise duty of 1.5 percent—for all customers.

"Today M-Shwari pricing is the same for everybody. The regime we want to go into is different prices for different people depending on credit performance.” Gachora said.

Defaulters who do not pay back their loans in time will be punished. Currently a customer is given a period of 30 days in order to repay his/her loan.
