How To Apply For And Repay A Faraja Loan From Safaricom

Safaricom’s got something cool called Faraja. It’s like a loan but without the pesky interest! With Faraja, Safaricom folks can buy stuff worth up to Sh100,000 and pay back later. So, you can shop now and worry about the bill later.

With Faraja, you can buy stuff from Ksh 20 to Ksh 100,000. No extra fees, unlike other loans. Just pay for what you need, no fuss.
