Why did I get less money than I applied for?

When applying for a Zash loan on the app, you will need to have an android phone, an active Safaricom line with mpesa and make sure the android version is compatible. The process of applying for a loan on the app is straight forward, but at the same time, it is not the easiest process compared to these loan apps in Kenya.
