‘Pewa’ Emergency Credit service from Telkom Kenya

It all started with “Okoa Jahazi”, a service that was introduced by Safaricom a few months back to aid its subscribers get airtime on credit, then “Kopa Credo” from Airtel came in and now Telkom Kenya has finally followed suit with Pewa emergency credit service where customers are allowed to get airtime in advance and pay later. We’ve all at some point run broke at crucial moments when making a call is worth your life long dreams such as a job interview or one of those moments we all dread for like a medical emergency, its therefore a service that’s incredibly beneficial in all senses. Of course these services are technically different considering variations in their mode of operation, unlike Okoa Jahazi which allows Safaricom subscribers get advance airtime worth KES50; Pewa from Telkom on the other hand only permits customers to get airtime worth KES15 payable at an interest rate of 10% unless its paid back is within 24hrs.
