You really need a new phone but can’t afford it in cash.
In fact you’d sell your left kidney to get the Huawei Met 20 pro, an iPhone X or OPPO F9 if you had the guts.
But who’s buying Kidneys?
What if I told you that there is a simple way to get either of the phones, furniture or even the best of Samsung electronics on a 12 months payment plan?
OK. Let’s rephrase that – you can now get the electronics that you love and pay for them in comfortable monthly installments. The facility is a rare service by Lipa Later Kenya.
Have you heard about it – anywhere?
Well, it doesn’t really matter because if you are totally green about this service, you will learn about it in this post. And if you have used it before, this is a great place to grab a few other important stuff you didn’t already know about the service.
What is Lipa Later?
Lipa Later Review Kenya 2019.
Lipa later is a Visa enabled credit card that can be used to access goods and services at any Visa enabled merchant.
You are then required to pay back for that service or product over 12 months in affordable installments.
To put this to perspective , you could buy a phone worth Ksh 10,000 and pay something like 1K a month over 12 months. Isn’t that a service you’d love to use?
Currently the service is available in Rwanda and Kenya.
