LENDING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES OF BANKS IN NIGERIA Case Study of Skye Bank Plc

 

ABSTRACT

 

 

 

Lending is the most important activity of the Bank. It is the utmost activity of financial intermediation whereby fund mobilized from the surplus sector of the economy is judiciously redirected to the deficit sector, for investment purposes and economic growth of the country. However, this lending activity is frosted in many dangers especially that of default and delay in repayment. This is what prudential guidelines try to curtail by creating performing and non-performing credit portfolios. Various Banks equally respond to this by creating lending policies, detail what to do and how is to be done concerning their various credit portfolios in order to minimise their exposure. Skye Bank plc (formerly cooperative Bank plc Osogbo Branch) is our case study in this work and we shall examine some of these policies aim at reducing non performance credit by various corporate bodies and customers by enhancing the Bank’s profitability.
