Watu Credit Boda Boda Loan Repayment Period and Process
Once you obtain motorcycle financing from Watu Credit, you should repay the loan daily or weekly.
Depending on the cost of your two-wheeler, your daily repayment amount can range from 300 to 400 Kenyan shillings. If you opt for expensive bikes, your daily installment will be Ksh.400 or more.
A loan officer will explain the prices of different motorbike models from your favorite brand. Once you pick your preferred brand, they will compute your daily and weekly loan installments based on price and other factors.
Instead of queuing in a bank, pick up your phone and send your daily or weekly repayments to Watu Credit’s Pay Bill number (659880). Here are the steps to repay your Watu Credit loan using M-PESA:
- Tap the “SIM Toolkit” icon on your phone and select “M-PESA”
- Once the M-PESA menu appears, choose the “Lipa na M-PESA” option
- Touch the “Pay Bill” tab
- Enter “659880” as the “Business Number”
- Enter your “Phone number” in the “Account number” box
- Type the “Amount” you plan to repay that day
- Double-check the transaction details and tap the “Submit” button if they are correct
- Wait for an M-PESA notification and a Watu credit text confirming your transaction
The maximum Watu Credit Boda Boda loan repayment period is 24 months. A loan officer will explain how the repayment period works. At the end of the loan term, the company should hand over your motorcycle logbook.
The logbook is the certificate you need the most because it is the proof of asset ownership.
How Much Will You Pay Eventually
Expect the total amount you end up paying to be higher than the current price of your motorcycle. This is because Watu Credit earns a profit by charging a particular interest rate.
So, multiply your daily installment by the repayment period to get the total installments.
Add the initial down payment of Ksh. 20,000 to your result to get the total amount you’ll pay for the motorbike. Subtract the retail price of your Boda Boda from this amount to see how much interest you will pay.
If you have complaints about installments or something else, contact Watu Credit agents on Facebook or Twitter. Alternative Watu Credit contact methods include:
