This article talks about some of the best money-lending loan apps in Uganda. Aren’t there any more people left that are still lending to other people? Not at all, there are still many people out there still lending money to those in need. If that is the case, why would one then choose to use an app to lend them money instead of an actual human being?
Well, first and foremost, in both cases, they are still human beings lending in the two ways. People made those money lending apps and put there the money you keep borrowing, not robots. Just that in the apps, you decide the terms of paying back the loan. By when you plan on paying back the loan. The interest on the loan also. Then you agree to the terms and conditions.
These money lending apps are convenient in that you only need your phone to get the loan within minutes. All you have to be eligible to apply for the loan you seek. Of which that is very achievable. What are some of these best money lending loan apps in Uganda?
1. Wewole – My Airtel App
Airtel Uganda launched the Wewole service (get a loan and pay it back within the agreed-upon time frame or duration), a micro-credit service that utilizes its Airtel Money platform. It allows Airtel Money users and agents to access loan conveniences through Airtel Money. No need for collateral or paperwork. The money you borrow is sent directly to your airtel money account.
People applying for these loans have to be registered with Airtel Money with a minimum of active 6 months of transaction history through Airtel Money. They will have to dial *185*8# to access Wewole. The service targets ordinary Airtel users. The fees charged vary depending on the amount you are requesting for. The reason its stands out is because of its repayment duration. It allows you to pay them back up to after two months, unlike MTN’s Mokash which strictly has a one-month repayment period. And you can pay back in installments of your choice, as long as you are paying back. To get bigger loans, one has to continuously use airtel money and their loan limit will increase.
NOTE: You can only be given another loan once the previous loan has been fully paid.
2. MoKash – MyMTN App
MTN Uganda launched MoKash a micro-savings and loans product that allows MTN Uganda customers to save and borrow money through their mobile phones while earning interest on money saved. It was first launched in Uganda before airtel’s wewole. MoKash allows you to save money too, unlike airtel’s wewole which is limited to only borrowing. Airtel allows depositing money too, isn’t it also saving? It is, but with MoKash, the money you save there is treated differently from the money from your Mobile Money account. How? Your balance on your Mobile Money account does not include the money on your MoKash savings account.
With that, customers are saving using MTN Mobile Money and are taking short-term loans without the need for the traditional red tape involved in loan processing. Everything is processed on their mobile phone within minutes. You must be a registered MTN Mobile Money customer to access MoKash. The loans you get are repaid from your MTN Mobile Money account. Any extra money paid on the loan is transferred to your Mokash savings account. Customers receive the full loan amount as requested. The repayment period is one month. To access MoKash, dial *165#.
