Timiza Loan App

Timiza App by Absa bank ( formerly Barclays Bank) is designed to enable Kenyans to access Loans among other services like paying bills, airtime top up,buying insurance,forex and paying for Little Cab over Android smartphones and tablets.

Updated Feb,2020 : Timiza is now by Absa Bank Kenya

Allow me to give my experience with Timiza Loan App from Absa Bank. As always my interest is in the 'loans feature '.

I learnt about Timiza like two months ago ( in March during the launch).As usual ,I tested it, the same way I did with Tala, Branch, Haraka,Shika, Afrikash and more ,because I wanted to share here on Loans Kenya Blog.The results were not okay for me.

Timiza was telling me 'No Account To Link ' and my loan limit was 'ZERO'.I quickly grouped this as one of those apps that require a linked bank account and savings like what most bank apps need.I therefore decided to leave it idle because I didn't have an account with Absa Bank.

Two months later (in May), today I decide to try Timiza app again and I was surprised!With nil savings and without linked bank account ,my loan limit was ksh16200 !

I decided to test the app again by requesting a loan of ksh 10000 , my first Timiza loan.Though it took two hours but it was credited to my Timiza virtual account.

Timiza App by Barclays loan approved

I can now confidently recommend Timiza Loan App to fellow Kenyans.This app truly gives out loans and you don't need to have an account with Absa Bank (Barclays Bank).The app will create a virtual account for you.

Getting Started with Timiza App.

All you need is to be 18 years and above,have an Mpesa account and an Android device (either a smartphone or tablet).

Now you're ready to go! 
If you don't get a loan limit right away, you can start saving with your virtual Timiza account or give it sometime like what I did.Just don't uninstall the app !
