19 entities you should avoid taking loans from
The Bank of Ghana has asked Ghanaians to divest from some 19 credit operators in the Ghanaian market.
The Central Bank said the entities were not licensed, so clients trading with them do so at their own risk.
In a statement dated August 22, 2022, seen by GhanaWeb, the Bank noted that these “unlicensed entities are engaged in lending to the Ghanaian public, in violation of the Banks and Specialized Depository Institutions Act 2016. (Law 930).”
The statement further mentions that these illegal entities mainly employ the use of mobile apps and social media in their activities.
“The activities of these unauthorized entities constitute a violation of the
consumer protection requirements and misuse of customer data and privacy
laws,” he added.
It is however not clear if there are other entities, but the Bank of Ghana lists these 19 financial entities among the entities providing lending services without a license from the Central Bank.
