The overwhelming majority of Kenyans who owe money and are defaulting on mobile loan apps are women.
The details published in the Daily Nation, have created shock waves.
Ladies how deep in debt are you and where is the money going to? Maina Kageni asked women, as he recounted reading an article published in the Daily Nation that suggested women are the biggest loan defaulters on mobile apps.

borrowing is like betting. Your husband doesn’t provide, you are jobless and have a kid to breastfeed. What do you do? Just borrow ukipata Kapesa unalipa tena unaomba loan #MainaAndKingangi
Woman caller: I’m in that trap. I’m a single parent I have loans all over, I don’t know how to come out of that. I owe if added together maybe 100k loan, I don’t know how to come out of it it’s so tricky it’s like a devil trap. I hate these apps, you have to survive like that imagine, and I have a small baby so for you to maintain that when you in such a situation you need money, so there is no way you can say you won’t borrow again. How can you stop borrowing, they call you and frustrate you, oh my god, help me out Maina give me a loan, give me half of it I wont borrow again,
