OKash makes it simple to access credit anytime, anywhere. Borrow from KES2,500~50,000 from OKash and receive it via M-Pesa. It’s one of the fastest and most convenient and reliable ways to access the credit you need, when you need it.
OKash is currently the most popular loan app on the Google Play store. Opera’s managing director Eddie Ndichu commented on the positive praise for the app, and acknowledged that there is an enormous demand in many countries for short term loans with the incentive for earlier repayment. OKash alongside M-Pesa lets all users access small loans for very low interest rates for as low as 1% per day, with a maximum time of 14 days.
“We know that there are more than 20 million people in Kenya who use loans actively every day and we want to give them a high-end product with an exceptional user experience to make their life more comfortable when applying for and making payments with loans,” Eddie says.
The company said in a statement “the faster a user pays off an active loan, the sooner they can request a new loan. Users with timely and consistent repayment behaviors can apply for a single loan up to 500,000 KES at a total interest of 5 percent.”
