Recently,a post has been going round Facebook with the claim that it is from the iPesa mobile app.

iPesa is  an app that makes it easy for people in Kenya to access a loan,anytime,anywhere.

The post on Facebook claimed that iPesa company was giving an easy loan of up to Kshs.50,000 to Infinix mobile users.According to the post,getting the loan was as easy as one,two,three.It stated that one was only required to first install the iPesa mobile app and then use it online to get the loan.

However,this is not true.

Mtaani Radio contacted the iPesa  company to check on the authenticity of the same.Their response showed that the post going round  wasn’t from them and that it therefore,wasn’t genuine.

They were also remorseful on any inconvenience caused by it.
