:: Lack of accurate biometrics hindering operations of credit rating bureaux - CRC Credit Bureau :: [cached]

The Managing Director, CRC Credit Bureau, Mr Tunde Popoola, has attributed dearth of accurate biometrics database and awareness as factors hindering credit bureau operations in the country.

Popoola told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos that decision making would have been quicker and more reliable if lenders had enough information about borrowers at their disposal.
He said that accurate database would accelerate automation of lending processes, isolate bad borrowers and blacklist chronic debtors.
Popoola also said that awareness creation would deepen knowledge of financial sector operators to understand credit bureau services. He advised that there should be concerted efforts by the regulators to encourage non-banking firms to engage in the services.

:: Banks may deny telecoms, electricity debtors credit facilities - CRC Credit Bureau :: [cached]

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, CRC Credit Bureau, Mr. Tunde Popoola, told our correspondent in an exclusive interview that the telecoms firms and the electricity distribution companies were submitting the information of those who had enjoyed their post-paid services without paying. According to him, all the information will be kept in the database and used to assess the credit worthiness of the organisations or individuals involved by the utility companies and other financial and non-financial institutions when fresh lending services are requested for.

Popoola said, "The information submitted is borrowers' information or the list of people who have enjoyed post-paid services with telecoms companies because it is a form of credit. They are using the services ahead of payment.
