HF Whizz Loan App Kenya
@HFGroupKE Whizz App
HFC Whizz App allows quick access to loans among other finance services  to its users both on Android and iOS smartphones in Kenya.

Apart from borrowing, what you can also do in a whizz include  paying bills, buying goods,buying airtime, deposit into whizz,sending money to hfc or other bank or Mpesa and sharing the app to friends.

Housing Finance Corporation (HFC) launched the app a week ago,but today I had the time to test and post my experience with the whizz app as I have been doing with the other apps.

After registration, the app demanded a deposit of ksh200 before calculating my loan limit and start taking loans.There is this new trend Know Your Customer (KYC) and HF is a trusted company therefore I deposited ksh500 and they gave me a loan limit of ksh6000 !

The good thing is that any Kenyan with a national ID card can try whizz.You don't need to be an existing customer with HF Bank to use this. The app will create a virtual account for you.

I borrowed ksh 1000 and I sent it to my Mpesa account and it happened in a whizz ! If you need to give the app a try, follow the steps below;


Getting Started with HF Whizz App


  • Download HFC Whizz App from Playstore for those using Android devices and check Whizz on App store for those using iOS.
  • Create your HF Whizz virtual account by providing your phone number and ID number.
  • Confirm by entering verification ( temporary pin)code sent to your phone number.
  • Set your new PIN 
  • Your account is active, just in a Whizz .


Borrowing from Whizz App

Am using Android device, I don't know about the iOS whizz experience. However all loans attract an interest of CBR plus 4% and 6% commission  fee. Loans start from ksh.1000 to a maximum of ksh.50000


  • Open the app
  • Select Loans
  • Enter your PIN
  • Select duration, 
  • Input amount you wish to borrow (not to exceed loan limit)
  • Choose reason for loan
  • Proceed.
Your loan will then be deposited into your Whizz account. Choose Send Mpesa to transfer the money to your Mpesa number. 

Repay Whizz Loan

Loans can be repaid through HFC Bank deposit, pay from Mpesa or pay from Whizz account.
Repayment period ranges between 1 day and 180 days (6 months) depending on the loan taken. 

  • Open the app
  • Select Loans
  • Select Repay Loan
  • Enter amount 
  • Proceed to repay using your Whizz account. 
If you choose Mpesa (if your Whizz account balance is insufficient),
you'll be prompted to enter your Mpesa PIN to complete the transaction. 

You'll then receive a notification about the repayment.
