I want to be an agent. I understand that I can earn up to Kes. 200,000 per month. However it sounds too good to be true..."You will earn your commissions when you lend money to your clients. Become a Pesa Pata agent today and experience your extra income.
I am very interested in becoming a Pesa Pata agent. I do not have the initial entry fee...Upon expressing interest, Pesa Pata may get you an angel investor to put up the entry fee for you. This means splitting the commission with the angel investor. The investors typically start off with a entry fee amount of Kshs 5,000. Upon success, the investors will then continue to top up your entry fee amounts.
I want a loan from Pesa Pata...You can also earn by borrowing money from Pesa Pata. As a Pesa Pata agent, you can lend money to other people AND at the same time borrow money from the platform. You are able to earn at the same time
I have the entry fee. I do not want to lend the money myself...In Kenya, half of the working population is unemployed. You may decide to create an impact by providing job creation for someone who is unemployed. You can put up the entry fee amount and get them to operate the account. You will then split the commissions with the person whom you have employed. For example, if you put up a entry fee amount of Kshs 5,000-the commissions you should get per month are Kshs 1,600. You may decide to give Kshs 800 to the person operating the account. The Pesa Pata platform has automated this process and has the capability to give you the full view of your accounts and respective clients.
Is entry fee refundable?The entry fee is a one-time fee that is non-refundable. If you get into a supermarket and buy soap, you exchange the soap with money. When you get home, you do not go back to the supermarket to claim your money back by returning the soap. Our business operates with the same principle. Our credit facility ensures that you recover the entry fee within the first 13 weeks through the commissions. For the remaining life of the account, you are then operating with profits. For example, if you put up a entry fee amount of Kshs 5,000, earning Kshs 400 per week, it means that you will recover the amount in 13 weeks. The other benefit is that the entry fee allows you to operate for upto 5 years without requiring the need for a top up. Additionally, if you no longer wish to run the Pesa Pata platform, the accounts may be transferred to another individual.
I have been an active Pesa Pata agent. I don't have the resources to add an aditional entry fee...The company will assist you to look for angel investors who may decide to top you up with the entry fee you seek. Angel investors look out to invest in agents who have demonstrated commitment and have a good track record.
