4. Why is my Fuliza Limit Zero
In some cases, your Fuliza limit may be zero after registering for Fuliza for the first time. This is usually brought about by a number of scenarios.
For Safaricom to allow your line to be eligible to Fuliza, a number of things are looked into. Lines that have been active for less than 3 months can not be used on Fuliza.
Lines still owing debts to either Mshwari, Safaricom KCB or other lenders are not eligible to use on Fuliza. Individuals blacklisted by lenders and banks or are in CRB are also not eligible to use the Fuliza services.
To increase your limit, make sure your line is at a good standing with other lenders, transact more with Mpesa and recharge frequently.
5. How to Repay Fuliza Loans
Fuliza loans are repaid by simply depositing money in your Mpesa account. Just like Okoa Jahazi, once the money is deposited in your Mpesa account, Fuliza deducts the loan from the amount.
