The attention of Bank of Ghana has been drawn to some individuals who
have acquired loans through mobile money platforms, but have
deliberately refused to register their SIM cards under the on-going
national SIM Card registration exercise, with the intention of avoiding
repayment of the acquired loans.
Bank of Ghana wishes to inform the general public that data on all
mobile money loan customers are domiciled in the databases of credit
bureaus. As a result, failure to repay such loans will attract negative
on borrowers’ credit reports/history
subsequently adversely affect any chance of obtaining loan facilities from
other financial institutions and credit providers in future.
Borrowers who have discarded their SIM Cards are advised to contact
their telecommunication service providers or respective lenders, to
discuss repayment arrangements to avoid adverse information on their
credit reports, that could deny them access to future credit facilities.
