There comes a time you might need to get a loan of a higher amount than what they currently offer you. Here is how to make sure you increase your loan limit.

  • You can move excess money from your M-Pesa to Your TIMIZA Account; this will show the bank that your account is active and might give you a raise.
  • The first time I got the App, they asked me to deposit into TIMIZA, I came to realize later that this helps grow my loan limit.
  • As I said earlier, the amount you qualify for initially will depend on your M-Pesa history, so it makes sense to increase usage of M-PESA services.
