Coopbank statement read in part;

We shall not levy any fees or other transactions charges, only interest that is compliant with the new law and pro-rated with the number of months,

Commercial banks offering mobile loan services have been against doing away with facilitation fees on loans since the new banking law came in existence. Such lenders included KCB,CBA and Equity bank.
