MP’s owing MASLOC urged to pay their debt

Must Read

The Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) has pleaded with Members of Parliament owing them to settle loans they took several years ago.

The Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Amoah has also disclosed that, the Center has written to Parliament demanding the Speaker to release some ‘debt-dodging’ MPs to enable legal action to be taken against them.

The defaulting MPs, he noted, cut across both political divides in the House.
Speaking to Accra based Joy FM, CEO of MASLOC Mr Stephen Amoah said: “We wrote to the Clerk [of Parliament], we’ve sent a reminder and we put letters in the pigeon holes of those who owe us and surprisingly we haven’t heard much.”

Some of the facilities, he mentioned date back as far as 2007. According to him, some of the defaulters also include celebrities in the entertainment industry some of whom they are unable to trace due to a poor addressing system.
“I’ll use your medium to plead with them, they are the lawmakers [so] they should make sure that they set very good examples and make sure that the loans are paid,” Mr. Amoah pleaded.
MASLOC is the microfinance apex body responsible for implementing the government’s microfinance programmes targeted at reducing poverty.
It has been providing micro and small loans for start-ups and small businesses with fast, easy and accessible microcredit and small loans to grow and expand their businesses as well as to enhance job and wealth creation.
However, a major challenge the Centre has been facing is the failure of loan beneficiaries to redeem the facilities they take.

The non-remittance he said, exceed ¢100 million yet the Centre has been able to collect only ¢10 million in the last couple of years.
The CEO said efforts are being made to improve on their collections so they would be in a good position to offer support for persons who need their service.
