Fuliza for Business is a credit service provided through M-PESA Business Tills, designed to assist business owners in processing transactions even when their accounts lack sufficient funds. The facility ensures seamless business operations by allowing them to overdraw their accounts.
Fuliza for Business operates on a mobile platform, which enables SMEs to access short-term, unsecured loans directly through their mobile devices. This digital approach not only simplifies the application process but also eliminates the need for physical visits to banks, thereby saving time and resources. Moreover, the platform is designed to offer loans ranging from micro to small-scale, catering to a diverse set of business needs.
One of the most appealing aspects of Fuliza for Business is its use of cutting-edge technology, including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, to assess loan eligibility and determine credit limits. By analyzing transaction history, cash flow patterns, and credit behavior, the platform is able to make informed decisions about a business’s creditworthiness. This data-driven approach helps reduce default rates and minimizes risks for both lenders and borrowers.
To qualify the business owner must first opt into the M-PESA Business till system. Additionally, they must have an active M-PESA Business account for at least six months to qualify for this convenient credit offering.
