How to Activate Fuliza MPesa, Get Loan, Repay and Increase Limit

Fuliza loan is a Safaricom M-Pesa overdraft service that allows you to complete M-Pesa transactions even with insufficient funds in your M-Pesa account, subject to a given limit. Once activated, you can fuliza money to someone else or even buy goods and services and pay bills using the Lipa na M-Pesa service.

That is, if you wanted to send money or buy something and you realize you do not have enough cash, you can use fuliza M-Pesa service to fund the balance.

You can Fuliza as many times as you need, provided you are within the allocated Fuliza M-PESA limit.

How to Repay Fuliza Loan

You do not need to go through lengthy processes to repay your fuliza loan.

Any funds received or deposited in your M-PESA account will automatically be used to clear your outstanding Fuliza M-PESA.

So, all you have to do is deposit into your M-Pesa account or receive money. The Fuliza loan plus the interest will be deducted automatically.

Penalties for not repaying Fuliza balances after 30 days include not being able to access your M-Shwari and KCB M-Pesa accounts and freezing of your Fuliza M-Pesa limit until you repay the balance.

How to Increase Fuliza Limit

You can grow your Fuliza limit by using Safaricom and M-Pesa services frequently and repaying fuliza loan on time by topping up your M-Pesa account.

Others have reported that you can try opting out and then back in. Be careful. Think twice before you take this route.
