President of NtaCCUL

It is no news there has been an ongoing armed conflict in the English speaking regions of Cameroon. Several ills have surfaced causing devastating effects to the population and economy of these regions (North West and South West), eventually the country as a whole.

Despite these difficulties faced, Ntarinkon Cooperative Credit Union Limited NTACCUL has had a steady increase in its number of membership from over 58000, to about 65, 914, registering over 7000 members and an amazing interest rate of 5%, one of the best interest rate among existing micro-finance institutions in Cameroon.

The cooperation during the 2020 financial year, recorded a 15% increase in its shares, 33% increase in savings, a 35% increase in deposits and a 13% increase in membership with a total asset increase of 29% as reflected in the annual report of the cooperation.

To this effect members of the cooperation benefit an average share savings of 5% for 2020. The President on this note thus encouraged members to save more in the coming year.

Despite remarkable process made in other domains, the delinquency of the cooperative stands at 20% a situation the Board President thinks can be overcame in 2021.

"The first thing to do is to curb down in lending, and to be able to master the people who are eligible for the new loans and for the old loans we are going to reinforce recovery which we learnt in the management report that we have a loan recovery tax force that is at work. And we have done some restructuring servic of the recovery service of the cooperative so that 2021 we able to reduce the loan delinquency to an acceptable level". Mr Fru Isaac Taku, President of NTACCUL

Moreover NTACCUL has faced some set backs due to the crisis. Projects envisaged for 2020 financial year were not realised as stipulated by the General Manager Ade Muma Divine.

"We have projects we cannot go ahead with because of the situation at hand, when the situation is better we are going to go into that, to make sure those who are affected by the ongoing crisis, get their buisnesses rebuilt." Ade Muma Divine NTACCUL's GM
