Creditinfo Academy visits Tanzania

Working through a case study

Creditinfo Tanzania, the first licenced credit bureau in Tanzania, provided yet another first of its type for the country, a “Credit” themed training programme delivered by Creditinfo Academy. The training was held at the prestigious Serena Hotel in Dar es Salam on 4th and 5th February 2014.

The training covered many areas including the use and understanding of credit bureau data, how credit scoring works and scorecard development. Most sessions were interactive to provide active involvement and help learning.

Feedback from participants was excellent. Mr. Robert Kimaro, an attendee from CRDB commented “I learnt a lot from the day about credit bureaus and the services and systems that they use and how these can assist my bank make smarter lending decisions, including how to grade the borrowers by using Creditinfo’s credit score, Creditinfo Predictor.

The course was led by Mr. Paul Randall, an international industry expert with more than 27 years’ experience in credit risk management.  Mr. Randall’s delivery style includes a number of audience participation techniques to not only engage the attendees but to also create more interesting and often unexpected content and network connections that are rarely achieved at traditional seminars.  Mr. Randall facilitated numerous tasks and activity sessions to reinforce the learning points covered.

Andrew Carter, CEO of Creditinfo Tanzania said “We are really lucky to have an international expert of Paul Randall’s caliber in Tanzania to lead these customer courses. His experience and knowledge from growing international markets is extensive and Tanzania banks and MFI’s we have lots to learn from him.”

Creditinfo Academy is due to be a regular feature on the calendar with Creditinfo Tanzania as the new credit bureau further expands its operations.
