Regulation

Loans are strictly for 21s and over. Loans for business use only. Finance is subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.

GHStartups is committed to maintaining full compliance with lending laws, and the company takes proactive steps on that. Some aspects of our direct non-deposit taking lending business may require some regulation (even as there are no rate-capping laws in Ghana). GHStartups will satisfy all regulated areas of our business as and when they are added. Sikamaster Loans is rolling out in phases, and currently at a non-deposit-taking, no upfront fee lending phase that does not require regulation.

GHStartups currently does not accept deposits and will not accept deposits in the near or foreseeable future. GHStartups is not providing a regulated service to you, so you will not have access to the Bank of Ghana redress if you wish to complain about our service.

Important

GHStartups is not providing a regulated service to you, so you will not have access to any Bank of Ghana Redress Service if you wish to complain about our service - that is if there is/was ever any protection for borrowers borrowing from non-deposit taking lender and when there are no usury laws in the books of The Republic of Ghana.

 

Future Regulation

The option of being regulated in the near future is to have access to certain vital national databases integral to our business model, operative model and strategic customer acquisition model, and NOT a step to take or mobilise deposits.
