Jazika loan app in Kenya

Jazika loan app under Jazika Ventures is another among  the long list of mobile loan apps in Kenya.

The app can lend up to ksh100000 to a qualified borrower in just minutes.The money is then disbursed to the borrower's Mpesa account for use.

I have  tried Jazika app myself but I was not lucky to get a loan. I already tested Utunzi loan app and it's like Jazika,Utunzi and even Craft loan apps are related.I even received an automatic verification from Utunzi to access Jazika app.

PesaZone Loan App

PesaZone Loan App in Kenya

PesaZone Loan App under  PesaPro Limited gives access to quick mobile loans of between kes250 and kes10000 to smartphone users in Kenya.

As usual,  I tried PesaZone before I recommend to my blog viewers  and this is my experience with the app. Actual the app truly gives out loans.I got mine just less than 5 minutes after applying. Navigation, colours and everything is okay.

But there's a fee....!? 

I paid kes40 non refundable, to be verified and I was given a starting loan of kes250. PesaZone gave a reason for the fee as 'Know Your Customer (KYC) and verifying if the mpesa account is truly yours to avoid frauds '.

Like many Kenyans, I don't like fees or any charges before applying for a loan especially online but I decided to try PesaZone Loan App.If you wish to try ,then let me help with the process;

Get Started with PesaZone Loan App

  • Login to the app

Pay HELB Via Mpesa

HELB Paybill number 200800


When it's time to repay your HELB (Higher Education Loans Board) loan, I know using Helb Paybill number 200800 would be more convenient because mobile money reigns in Kenya now and you don't need to use a smartphone but even a feature phone (the mulika mwizi mobile phone).

The good thing is that by repaying an educational loan from HELB, you're giving a chance to a fellow needy student to join campus. Also you keep yourself off the CRB blacklist.

Whether you want to pay the loan in full or in instalments using the Lipa na Mpesa feature on Safaricom SIM card ,Kindly follow these steps;

How to repay HELB loan Via Mpesa 


  • Go to Mpesa 
  • Select Lipa na Mpesa 
  • Select Paybill 
  • Enter business number 200800 (This is HELB Paybill number)
  • Enter your ID number as Account number
  • Enter Amount of loan you wish to pay 
  • Enter Mpesa PIN 
  • Confirm details 
  • Submit  


How to Contact HELB customer care 

After you repay your loan in full , you can visit the HELB offices for a clearance certificate.You can also visit the offices for any other enquiries at Anniversary Towers,19th floor, University Way, Nairobi.


  • Call HELB on; 0711052000
