Delays in loan disbursement and matters arising
Felicitations from the CCT Funds.
The management wishes to bring to the attention of contributors that, loan disbursement has been experiencing some delays for the past 2 weeks, of which many of you have had calls to complain
The unfortunate situation has come about as a result of the following
Delay in remittance from CAGD
House members may already be aware, CCT FUND has a contract with a third party, the CAGD to deduct contributions and loan repayments on its behalf and remit the same to the fund’s account. Unfortunately, there has been an increased delay in the remittance from CAGD, in recent times
The recent increase in salary which took effect in January 2023 has resulted in improved affordability for many contributors. Contributors are therefore able to apply for a higher amount than previously.
The two issues of delays in remittance from CAGD and increased affordability for higher loan amounts have caused a lot of liquidity challenges for the fund.
Fidgeting with the loan application platform
Management has also noted with concern, attempts by some people to apply for loans on the portal, although they were not qualified to do so. This has also resulted in Long wetting and due diligence assessment of loan applications.
To address the issues,
management is taking the necessary steps in the interim to
Liquidate Investments near maturity to pay loans
