The loan has an interest of 6% which reduces as your limit increases. 

During the pilot, it can take up to 48 hours or less to receive funds. After the first month, we aim to make it less than 6 hours and after the pilot 3 months’ time, it will be instant. 

You should expect your requested amount less the fee. The fee will be deducted from the amount you receive but you will be required to pay the whole amount you requested for. 

The repayment period for the loan is 4 weekly installments from the time borrowed. You will be advised accordingly with specific dates once you borrow. 

To pay this loan, go to your M-pesa menu, select Paybill 600100 and account number 0100003693052. Remember to use your registered M-pesa phone to make payments. 

  • We require no collateral to access the funds.
  • We focus on the customers growth and assist in achieving it through educative blogs.

  • We have a flexible re-payment period of up to 4 equal installments. 

If you ever have issues with re-payment, please reach out to us via the form on our website. 

You can grow your limit through consistent borrowing and increasing your sales. When your sales increase on the Jumia platform, we will be able to increase your limit every-time you borrow. 

If you do not repay within the agreed period, we will deduct the amount owed from your Jumia sales account to repay your loan amount until fully settled.
