Last week, Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge banned a number of mobile lenders from using the Credit Reference Bureaus (CRB), depriving them of an essential tool to assess the creditworthiness of a potential borrower.

In addition to unregulated mobile lenders, the Central Bank of Kenya CBK has also withdrawn approvals given to unregulated credit-only lenders as third party credit information providers to CRBs.

“The withdrawal is in response to numerous public complaints about the misuse of the credit reporting system by unregulated and exclusively dedicated digital lenders, and in particular their poor responsiveness to customer complaints.

As a result, unregulated digital and credit-only lenders will no longer submit credit information about their borrowers to CRBs, ”the CBK said in a statement.

It’s a blow to hundreds of fintech credit providers such as Branch International and Tala, which had become household names with almost every working smartphone in Kenya having a digital lending app.
