Six million Kenyans who have subscribed to the Hustler Fund will now be able to access more money following a review of their borrowing history.
The Hustler Fund will review its 18 million user’s borrowing history after every four months and award them with a financial grade.
President of the Republic of Kenya Dr. William Ruto explained that the financial grade will determine loan limits based on how regularly one borrows and repays on time.
“End of this month every borrower will be assigned a financial grade. This will explain what makes one have a good grade,”
The President also announced the launch of a new product, Hustler Fund Micro Credit, that will allow Saccos, and Groups to borrow on behalf of their members.
“By the end of this month, Hustler Fund will have a second product that will help those in Sacco and groups to also access low interest credit and help members grow their businesses,”
President Ruto made the remarks during the Kenya Police Sacco 50th Anniversary Celebrations and opening of Police Sacco Stadium in South C, Nairobi County.
The President said the Government will support cooperative societies to improve access to credit and nurture a culture of saving among Kenyans.
He said the government was working towards the introduction of a Central Liquidity Facility and creating a shared services digital platform to enhance the performance of the sector.
President Ruto lauded the Police Sacco for building a Stadium that will be utilized to nurture talents in the police service and South C area.
