Once you have made you application, you will be asked to confirm your identity. There are several ways that you can do this. You will need to upload an official government issued identification document onto the system. You can make a choice from your voter’s ID, national ID, driving license or passport.
After you have successfully uploaded your identification, the next step is to provide some more information about yourself. First, you should provide proof of your residential address, which could be in the form of a utility bill. In addition, you are also required to go to your closest government office and request for a letter that confirms your address. This letter will act as our resident identification that is issued from your local government. These documents then need to be uploaded onto your L-Pesa account together with your official identification. This step is compulsory so make sure that you have all your documentation in place.
With all your documentation in place, you are moments away from being verified and getting your loan. The next step is to create your very own profile on the L-Pesa platform. This requires you to have a passport size picture that clearly shows your face. After all, you do want to have an account where you look good. You will then receive a call from an L-Pesa representative who will take you through a short interview. This is to get confirmation of your details, and help set up better security parameters for your account.
