  • Present an employer letter verifying your employment status
  • Have payroll deductions set up.
  • Offer pension assets as collateral

Stage 5: Instant Loan Decision Process

CedisPay Scoring Process: Our automated system evaluates your creditworthiness using a sophisticated scoring mechanism.

Capacity Assessment (DTI): The system assesses your Debt-to-Income (DTI) ratio to determine your ability to repay the loan.

System Approval Decision: Based on your credit score and DTI, the system autonomously approves or declines your loan application. To secure approval, you must meet both criteria: a minimum credit score of 50 and a DTI not exceeding 30%. These requirements apply even if you provide collateral, as CedisPay prioritizes responsible lending.

Eligible Income Calculation: The system calculates your eligible income by considering your income, expenses, and other deductions.

Stage 6: Detailed Credit and Income Assessment and Document Review Process
    Within 24 hours, CedisPay conducts a comprehensive assessment of your identity, address, credit, and income. This process includes:
  • Identity and Location Verification:
    • Proof of Identity Check: CedisPay verifies your identity by interfacing with the National Identification Authority (NIA), cross-referencing your details with information from your bank and mobile money statements.
    • Proof of Residence Check: You must provide a GPS address, either as a screenshot of the live location using the Ghana Post App or a picture of the metal plate in front of your building. CedisPay staff will verify the GPS address online at https://www.ghanapostgps.com/map/. Additionally with your consent, we:
      • Use geolocation technology to confirm your location during the loan application
      • Verify your location using IP geolocation when you access the loan application online
      • Require a video tour of your residence or business location as part of the loan application.
      • Implement multi-factor authentication to further verify your identity and location
  • Creditworthiness Assessment:
    • Credit Bureau Data: We collect your credit data from two credit bureaus in Ghana via APIs. Our software verifies the consistency of bill and loan payments from the credit bureau reports in conjunction with your bank and mobile money statements
    • Bank Statement Review: CedisPay's software reviews your bank statements from the past three months to ensure consistent bill and loan payments
    • Mobile Money Statement Review: Our software also reviews your mobile money statements from the past three months for consistency
  • Income, Expenses, and Debt Verification:
    • Comprehensive Analysis: CedisPay employs software to assess your transaction history, account balance, transaction consistency, bill payments, and savings behavior. This analysis helps determine your income, evaluate your living expenses, and verify your debt expenses
    • Risk Adjustment: The software adjusts your income for risk factors such as excessive loans, gambling, savings or investments, excessive pension /saving withdrawals, and income volatility
  • This robust loan approval process ensures responsible lending decisions, prioritizing your financial well-being.
Stage 7: Loan Disbursement
