Finally Revealed! Why Your KCBMPESA Loan Limit is Zero

    July 07, 2020   No comments
Have you ever wondered why your KCBMpesa loan limit is zero? Don't be wondering anymore.

There are some particular reasons as to why such a limit is given to you and I will share the reasons here.

First, KCBMpesa is a loan and savings service provided by Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) through Safaricom's Mpesa mobile money service.

Before one can get a loan from KCBMPESA, he or she must be a Safaricom subscriber with a registered Mpesa account.

The system doesn't it's own evaluations before coming up with a loan limit for each M-Pesa user. Here are now the reasons why the loan limit you will be awarded will be zero;

  1. If your Safaricom number is less than six months old. 
  2. If your don't frequently use Mpesa to send or receive cash
  3. If you're blacklisted by the CRB
  4. If you don't save or withdraw frequently from your KCBMPESA account 
  5. If you have an existing active loan with KCBMPESA.

This is why Kenyans are leaving Safaricom

Safaricom PLC

Safaricom is still the biggest telco in Kenya compared to other telecommunication companies including Airtel and Telkom.

However, according to a recent report by the Communication Authority of Kenya (CAK) the telcos regulator,  Safaricom voice market share dropped 2 points from 67.1 percent to 65.7 percent.

This drop was as a result of some customers opting to use Airtel network to make calls and for longer duration at an average of 4.0 minutes on-net. For this reason Airtel voice market share increased by 1.7 percent to 30.9 percent.

It is clear that Airtel and Telkom are changing much less when it comes to voice calls  and its exactly what is making Kenyans migrate from Safaricom.

Safaricom however is still the better option when we try to consider other services including Mpesa and stable internet network.
