DSTV Ghana has released details of new prices at which they would offer their packages for sale from Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

In other news, the Ghana Micro Credit Association (GMCA) has appealed to the Bank of Ghana to review the current minimum capital requirement.
The GMCA explained that the GHC2 million required by the Central Bank before a money lender could legally operate in the country has led to a number of challenges.
It added that a refusal to review the fee would lead to a foldup of businesses of moneylenders, especially those in the remote areas, Business Insider.com reports.
GMCA’s board chairman, Wilberforce Ofori, noted that “Micro Credit institutions are helping a lot of people in one way or the other especially in the remote areas.
That is why we are saying that for those in the remote areas they do not need a minimum capital requirement of Gh¢2 million.”
In August 2019, the Bank of Ghana revealed that microfinance institutions are required to provide a GHC2 million capital requirement by February 28, 2020, a refusal to do so which would result in sanctions.
Ofori noted that the new requirement reflects an increment from the earlier announcement of GHC300,000 after it was revised from GHC60,000 to GHC100,000.
