The Central Bank of Kenya has officially banned unregulated mobile-based credit lenders from listing you on Credit reference Bureaus. This has been taken by CBK after numerous complaints from people that they are being listed for as little as Ksh. 1000 debt, whereas to the to be cleared you have to part with Ksh. 2200.00.

This comes at a time worrying statistics show that over 3 million Kenyans, especially the youth are blacklisted on CBR.

As most of us may not be aware of, digital lenders are either regulated or unregulated. Those that won’t access CBR services are those that are unregulated.
