Debt Management, Workouts and Restructuring

14th - 18th September 2015, Harare, Zimbabwe

The incidence of high credit failures and growing non – performing loans are amongst current challenges of most financial institutions and has accounted for the failure of many. Most often, problem loans have their roots in flagrant abuse of credit /loan policies and
poor analytical skills of some lending officers. Thus, sanctioning a performing loan or credit depends on strict adherence to good loan policies and procedures, and the character of the lending professionals among others.

The training equipped learners with fundamentals required in credit relationship management, managing problem loans and post investment strategies that will enhance optimal recovery of bad loans and also nurture redeemable ones to good standing.

Twenty three (23) delegates from development finance institutions and governments attended the workshop. Six (6) countries represented were, Botswana, Namibia, Seychelles, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
