‘Don’t take loans from these 19 institutions’-Bank of Ghana warns Ghanaians  

The Central Bank of Ghana has sent a word of caution Ghanaians against taking loans from some 19 unlicensed institutions. It stated emphatically that the Ghanaian citizenry should be wary doing business with such institutions.

In a statement on August 22, 2022, it read,  “Bank of Ghana has observed that a number of unlicensed entities are engaged in the provision of loans to the Ghanaian public, in contravention of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-Taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930). These illegal entities mostly employ the use of mobile applications and social media in their activities.”

The BoG claims that the actions of these illegal businesses amount to a violation of consumer protection rules and a violation of laws governing client data and privacy.

The following organizations are among those offering lending services without a license from the Bank of Ghana:
