How to Borrow Loan, Withdraw and Pay Bills Using Equitel

In October 2015, Equity Bank revealed that it had processed about 1.2 million loans worth Sh5.4 billion through Equitel in a period of 10 months. This is a huge number compared to 438,000 loans issued by the bank through credit officers in branches in the same period.

Equity Banks Group CEO, Dr. James Mwangi revealed that the average loan taken on Equitel was Sh5, 000 and that a majority of the people taking loan did so from midnight.

EQUITEL has made it very simple to apply for a loan on mobile -eliminating all the intermediaries such as MPESA making its loans the most affordable in the market.

The interest rate charged is from as low as 2% per month. For example, if you request for a loan of Kshs 1,000 you will receive the full loan amount requested -with no upfront charges. So, you will be required to pay back Kshs 1,020 within a month when your interest is at 2% interest.
