Loan Apps: FCCPC approves 94 companies as digital money lenders to curb loan sharks

As part of the plans to curb the spread of loan shark activities in the country, the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has approved the operations of 94 digital money lenders in Nigeria.

From the cache of companies, the commission stated that only 49 of the digital lenders were given full approval, while the remaining 45 got conditional approval.

The agency disclosed this in an update on its ongoing registration of digital money lenders in the country.

Nigerians have been the target of unlicensed loan apps, otherwise known as loan sharks., which has brought disgrace and threat to unsuspecting users.

FCCPC 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 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.

Recall that 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.

This is a list of the 49 digital money lenders that have secured full approval from the FCCPC:
