The Lipa Mdogo Mdogo concept is for those who’d like to purchase a phone and pay for it little by little.
The idea is that you can pay as little as 20 shillings a day and then you’re given a repayment plan up to a year. For those who can complete payments within a week, you’re rewarded with 100MB free YouTube bundles.
So the big question is, how do you qualify?
1. Age requirements
Customers who qualify must be between 18 and 75 years of age, have been using their Safaricom line for at least one year and have a favourable credit score.
2. You should have a good credit score
However, customers who are blacklisted on KCB M-Pesa, Mshwari, Okoa Jahazi and Okoa data or locked due to fraud will NOT be able to participate. Safaricom will also help customers keep up with their payments with alerts sent every day as a reminder of the remaining balance.
How to enrol
1. Firstly use the number *544#
The simple steps to enrol for the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo smartphones begin with dialling *544# and selecting the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo option.
After that, you will accept the Terms and Conditions for the service before Safaricom informs you of the devices you can purchase.
When you have decided on the 4G device you want, you will be required to make a down payment through M-Pesa.
The final step will take place at your nearest Safaricom shop where your identity will be verified then your device will be set up and you can happily walk out with your device in hand.
