mySafaricom App has just been updated to add Fuliza submenu for those who want to use this new service. Fuliza M-Pesa is an overdraft service that allows M-Pesa customers to complete M-Pesa transaction even when they have insufficient funds in their accounts. This is not a loan facility but rather is a service that lets you send money or complete a Lipa na M-Pesa (Buy goods and Pay bill) transaction even when you have insufficient funds.
When Fuliza went live, the submenu was missing from mySafaricom app but it has now been added with the latest update. The submenu is under M-Pesa and from there you can opt in/out, see your limit, information about your Fuliza and some other key stats that you may find useful
