How to Apply for a loan on Timiza App
A loan from Timiza is not given out immediately after you register on the app. You need to use it for some time to qualify. In addition to that, you need to have used M-pesa for at least six months and have a good rating at CRB and Safaricom. Your phone should have been active for quite some time where you use other Safaricom services such as voice, data, and M-Pesa.
Here are steps to successfully apply for your first Timiza loan through Timiza App:
- Open Timiza App on your phone
- Select “My loans.”
- Select Request Loan
- Your loan limit will be displayed; you can enter a lower amount or this limit and Click on “Continue.”
- They will send the loan to your Timiza Account.
With the money in your account, you can withdraw to M-Pesa or pay bills and other services via the Timiza App.

There are three ways you can use to pay Timiza loan:
