Loan Apps approved by the Central Bank of Kenya

This year, Google Play Store adopted a new policy requiring loan apps in Kenya to be approved by the regulator, the Central Bank. This was meant to curb Kenyans from fraudulent loan apps.

Earlier last year, the Central Bank had also required that these apps provide information on their sources of funds, to prevent bad players from illegal business like money laundering.

As of the end of March 2023, only 32 Apps have received a license from the Central Bank. Google has gone ahead to delete hundreds of Apps from the Play Store. They may only be reinstated once the Central Bank gives them licenses to operate.
