It all started with Tala ( started as Mkopo Rahisi) then Branch International came in. Thereafter , since ,there have been a season of loan app proliferation.

Kenyan commercial banks were reluctant to jump in until when customers were almost totally shying away from approaching them for small unsecured loans.

At this time Mshwari and KCBMPesa were already operational but were not popular with the only reason being that you were to save money with them first before you could get a loan.

The unsecured mobile loans provided through mobile apps were trust based.This made Mshwari and KCBMPesa become trust based too.

3 Banks with Loan Apps 

Loan apps by banks

The loan apps game became so popular with most kenyans that some banks came up with their own backed apps.

Because these apps were backed by strong lenders ,they started on a high note by giving large amounts with big maximum loan limits. Check the list below;
