The Bank of Ghana will , Friday September 11, make a public declaration  of its final verdict on suspended DKM Microfinance Company..

The central bank placed a 90 day moratorium on the operations and accounts of the company, when an audit report revealed that the company had contravened the Banking Act.

According to the Central Bank, DKM Microfinance did not have enough in assets commensurate to monies owed customers.

The regulator later placed an additional 30- day moratorium on the company, requiring it to raise its capital base by GHC50 million.

In an interview with Pulse Business, the Director at the Bank of Ghana in charge on non-banking and other financial institutions Raymond Amanfo, said

" We ask the customers of DKM to remain calm. We will make a public declaration of our verdict tomorrow, Friday 11 September. We have assessed DKM's situation thoroughly, and also assessed their compliance with our other requirements for them to increase their capital base, as well as restructure their board."

Mr. Amanfo will however not say whether DKM had been able to raise the required GHC50 million or not.
