Digital Money Lenders

The Federal Government has approved 94 digital money lenders. 

 

NewsOnline reports that the Federal Government has approved the operations of 94 companies as digital money lenders in Nigeria.

However, only 49 of the digital lenders were given full approval, while the remaining 45 got conditional approval.

Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) disclosed this in an update on its ongoing registration of digital money lenders in the country, an exercise targeted at tackling the menace of unlicensed loan apps, otherwise known as loan sharks.

 

The Commission said it came up with the Limited Interim Regulatory/Registration Framework and Guidelines for Digital Lending in collaboration with the Joint Task Force (JTF) to promote fair, transparent, and beneficial alternative lending opportunities for Nigerians.

The guidelines: The guidelines require digital lenders to register with the FCCPC and complete two forms (Form DLG 001 and Form DLG 002). 

 

Form DLG OO1 is the registration form that requires the applicant company to provide identification and operational information to the FCCPC, while Form DLG 002 contains declarations relating to: 

  • Legitimacy; 
  • Compliance with applicable regulatory requirements; 
  • Lawful source of funds and conformity with anti-money laundering; and 
  • Data protection laws. 

While the Commission had last year given all the digital money lenders 90 days to comply with these guidelines, it later extended the deadline which expired on November 14, 2022, to January 31, 2023.
