Subscribers who take up an overdraft of between Ksh501 – 1,000 will now be charged six per cent daily.
They will also enjoy a special waiver.
“Further, customers that drawdown Ksh1000 and below shall enjoy a waiver on the daily maintenance fees for the first three days,” read the statement in part.
