I would like to bring to your attention an issue that has really frustrated me and that I think a vast majority of Kenyans are suffering under.
It is about Metropol Credit Bureau. I was listed with them for some defaulted loans including HELB. I paid all the loans and started repaying my HELB loan. I was in the clear by early March. Over the months, I have been purchasing credit reports at Ksh 250 from them every month.
To my frustration, I am still listed as a defaulter. For instance, even after taking mobile loans that have since been reported with them as good loans, my score remains 432 as it was in June. This means I cannot access credit since I would need above 500.
Now, I did clear my loans in March, I have not defaulted on any other loan, if anything, I have taken more than 10 mobile loans and repaid. Isn't this a deliberate way to continue making money out of frustrated Kenyans by selling them credit reports without reviewing their ratings? What formula do they use?
This is a criminal enterprise that should be told off!
I bring this to you because I know you are well versed with good governance. This kind of exploitation and frustrating people's lives is unacceptable and unbearable. We have families. Please help.
