Okolea loan app Kenya

Okolea loan app under Okolea International, gives quick mobiloans to all Kenyans through their android smartphones but unfortunately I have never been able to be approved for one.As per the information on their website,the loans range between ksh100 to ksh100000

I don't know much about it but the app interface is fine.Thats am sure of because I tried it.I checked the comments on Google play store and saw that some were lucky to be approved for loans though complaining.

Nobody likes paying to get a loan.One thing which I also found with this app is 'appraisal fee' of ksh100 if you didn't get approved right away for the loan.
