The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission’s latest report indicates that the number of loan apps delisted from circulation increased significantly, going from nine to 37.
In contrast, the number of officially approved loan apps has risen to 164 from the previous 154 as per the most recent data available from the Commission’s website on Monday. Meanwhile, the number of loan apps granted conditional approval has decreased to 38 from 40, while the number of apps under the Commission’s watchful eye has surged to 56 from a previous tally of 20.
