How to grow your Huster Fund loan limit

Currently, the fund has a minimum limit of Sh500 and a maximum of Sh50,000.

However, President William Ruto during the launch said borrowers stand a chance of increasing their loan limits if they repay their loans before the stipulated repayment day elapses.

“Wakati unakopa na kulipa ndio unapata nafasi nyigine ya kukopa tena, unagraduate uende micro loan itoke Sh50,000 uende level nyigine,” he said.

This is loosely translated to: “When you borrow and repay your loan, you get another chance of reborrowing, and graduate to another level of the Huster Fund.”

The credit history of a borrower will also determine the amount one will receive.

“Hustlers are encouraged to continue using the Fund and pay their loans on time, to increase their limits.”
