Parliament’s Finance Committee has tasked the management of the Micro Finance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) to do better with its loan recovery strategies.
The caution comes after it was gathered that MASLOC recovered only 55% of loans disbursed in 2019.
The latest rate represents a fall from 64% which was recorded in the year 2016.

The Committee’s chairman, Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah, noted that several targets set by MASLOC for the year under review were not met.
Per a report by classfmonline.com, this was during his presentation of the Committee’s report on the budget performance of the office of government machinery for 2019.
Dr. Assibey-Yeboah also revealed that the Committee received information that during the period under review, the office of the government machinery faced challenges.
The challenges included budgetary allocation, arbitrary use of the budgetary allocation and inadequate capacity of key implementers.
This, he said, left the office incapable of effectively executing its programme of activities as approved by parliament.
