The Nigerian Consumer Credit Corporation (CREDICORP) will strengthen Nigeria’s credit reporting systems, ensuring every economically active citizen has a dependable credit score.

This score will serve as personal equity, facilitating access to consumer credit. CREDICORP will also offer credit guarantees and wholesale lending to financial institutions dedicated to broadening consumer credit access.

“This initiative promotes responsible consumer credit as a pathway to an improved quality of life, fostering a cultural shift towards growth and financial responsibility,” Ngelale said in the statement.
