Follow me!

What is Fuliza

What many might ignore is what Fuliza is actually. Is it owned by Safaricom? Is it a normal loan similar to other bank loans? What type of a loan is fuliza. Well, I will articulate all this points at a shot and you will have a clear image of fuliza at a glance.

Fuliza is a short-term overdraft service that is provided to Safaricom’s M-Pesa customers. It is provided to a specific maximum limit customized to each customer.

This overdraft service is usually not a product of Safaricom only. It is a service provided by an agreement between Safaricom, KCB Bank and NCBA Bank as well.

Jointly, they are able to provide the fuliza services being that Safaricom is not a financial institution hence limiting it from offering the lending capacity.

What Happens if you Default Fuliza Overdraft?

Upon defaulting Fuliza, you will face several consequences which might later affect your fuliza limit or also terminate the product services.

Fuliza Default Period

Fuliza’s default period is usually 30 days from the day in which the facility was first granted without including the top-ups upon that first facility.

  3. If any claims, assertions, or information provided by you turn out to be false;
  4. If you violate any terms, conditions, covenants, or provisions of any other agreement we have with you about the Facility, or if you fail to comply with such terms, conditions, covenants, or provisions;
  5. If we learn that you have admitted to being unable to pay your debts when they become due or if there is a reasonable suspicion that you cannot pay your debts;
