Reference is made to a number of media reports that seem to insinuate that our company is practicing predatory lending by charging exorbitant interest rates and loan charges.

While in the past we have opted to ignore these baseless allegations and rumours, we now feel that our detractors have used our silence to gain steam and propel those innuendos even further and hence it is apt that we set the record straight:

1. Mwananchi Credit practices Risk Based Lending. This means that we lend people according to their risk factor with lower risk getting lower rates and higher risk being commensurately weighed. Nonetheless, compared to our peers, our interest rates are among the lowest in the industry
(between 1.67 to 3%) . This is the main reason why we remain one of the leading lenders in our sector, with a majority of our loan book being repeat clients.
2. Mwananchi Credit’s appetite to assume higher risk enables us to expand the bracket of those who qualify for credit and this has resulted in thousands of Kenyans being able to grow their businesses and deal with their emergencies through Mwananchi Credit’s financing facilities.
3. In case of defaulted loans, like any other financial institution, some penalties may be accrued. But as a matter of good faith, whenever the customer has shown the desire and commitment to repay their loans, we have always shown goodwill by waiving most of the penalties, in some cases as much as 100%.We are among the most restrained when it comes to reaching the drastic level where we have to recover the collateral asset.
4. A combination of the above factors have contributed to the fast growth of Mwananchi Credit; a fact that is not lost on some of our competition, who are directly at the forefront of some of the false allegations via proxies.
5. Mwananchi is one of the few Micro Finance Institutions that offer large sums of loans to single individuals. Because of this, a few wayward clients, most of them high net worth, have come to borrow monies from Mwananchi Credit with the sole intention of not repaying those monies. They have perfected the art of misusing our legal processes to buy time while in the meanwhile using media to blackmail us in the hope that they do not repay their loans. However, the fact that some of these matters are already in court limit our capacity to discuss them.

6. Mwananchi Credit remains committed to our agenda to invest in our Kenyan people by providing financial backing in cases of emergencies as well as for growth of business.
