How to apply for Usawa loan
To apply for Usawa loan, just download and install the Usawa Loan App from Google play store, and apply for your loan using the option on the app. On Google play store, once you download the Usawa apk app file, simply install to allow you to apply for a loan.
Before you apply please note, there may be a KES 400 registration fee which we found was strange as no other loan app in Kenya that we have reviewed has asked for registration fe when applying for a loan.
We would think, mostly when Kenyans are looking for loans, one is in a tight situation to even start being asked for a registration fee may seem silly.
Take caution too, since there is a good number of Kenyans who have applied for Usawa loan, paid the registration of KES 400 and got a loan of KES 350. If true, this ethically is not right.
Usawa loan app interest rate was another concern. One Usawa customer shared with us that the Usawa interest rate was too high, they paid a registration fee of KES 400 then got a loan of 350sh, the second time they borrowed a loan of 450 only to pay 652.
Kindly share your experiences if you have applied for Usawa loan and let others know if you like it or dislike the loan service offered by Usawa.
Before taking a loan it is wise to read our 5 Questions to ask yourself before you take a Loan.
USAWA LOAN INTEREST FEE
Usawa loan interest fee, varies between 5 to 33% of the loan amount per 30 day advance period.
USAWA LOAN REPAYMENT & LATE PAYMENT
Usawa loan late payment may attract an extension fee.
Once you fail to pay within the specified time as per your initial loan offer agreement, an interest free extension will be offered and if you fail to pay too within that time frame, the loan will be rolled over or a period of at least two weeks, and that is what attracts the extension fee.
The extension date and fee for any Usawa loan late payment will be decided and communicated to you by Usawa.
