I have used @SafaricomPLC's #Fuliza in the past few weeks to learn it. Its a saviour when you are in a jam - at the supermarket when you're short, when you need to send mum something and your MPESA is dry, when fuel is running out and the month is at the corner...
What you cannot do with #Fuliza: buy credit, pay KAPS parking (*486*1#) or use any of the short codes, pay your Mshwari loan... (essentially you cannot pay for any of the @SafaricomPLC services)...

Yesterday I went to Naivas and when I finished and needed to pay for parking, 😳
But be very aware of the costs. Its serious costs for a useful service. Look at the screenshots here carefully. You will have to pay a one time fee & interest on the overdraft.

@SafaricomPLC have not disclosed the tarrifs in an easy to find way. See FAQs.
So if you #Fuliza 400 shillings to someone, @SafaricomPLC will charge a transaction fee of ksh 11 (money to @SafaricomPLC). Then your interest to pay back will be sh 4.11!

I'm told @SafaricomPLC has given overdrafts worth more than 100B 🤑🥶 so far... please know, dear peculiar Kenyan, that you are making them wealthy, as you make yourself poorer. As you #Fuliza, then take Mshwari you are getting short term convenience and long term poverty.
One lady at the @naivas told me yesterday that #Fuliza has changed her buying habits.

"Before, nikikosa doh, I prioritise and buy what I need - like today I'd have just bought milk & bread. With Fuliza even what I cant afford now I buy!"

Who's 😁? @naivas and @SafaricomPLC
3 days ago, a 23 year old guy told me that he has built a credit limit over time of 25k by regularly borrowing and paying back. Now he has 25k on Mshwari and 25k on Fuliza.

"50k you guy!!"

He couldn't tell that everytime he borrowed and paid back, @SafaricomPLC 😂😂😂.
Haba na haba hujaza kubaba. Every time you borrow, others laugh as you get poorer. Beware!

Dear @SafaricomPLC thanks for a super service! Now please disclose clearly the #Fuliza tarriffs and make them easy to find on your website.

Wacha I go pay back my #Fuliza and Mshwari bill
Look at this DM thread as I ask for the #Fuliza Tarriffs. Why do you think the tarriffs are not easily accessible?

"We have not segmented #Fuliza into tarriffs."

😳 whatchutalkingbout @SafaricomPLC?
