FE Report | September 12, 2019 00:00:00

The Microcredit Regulatory Authority (MRA) has slashed the service charge of the micro-finance institutions (MFIs) on microcredit to 24 per cent from the existing 27 per cent.

The regulator issued a circular in this regard on September 9.

From now on, the MFIs can charge a maximum of 24 per cent as per 'reducing balance method', according to the circular.

The reduction in service charge for microcredit would benefit the poor borrowers, said a director of the MRA.
