It was realized that the performance of any micro finance institutions as far as loans are concerned depends on its existing loan process or rather policy at any given time period thus NMB use loan process to evaluate the credit worthiness of its customers hence this has enabled the bank to run smoothly and effectively. It was also found out that NMB uses collateral/security policy which helps them to rate the credit worthiness of its customers. Collateral policy also helps the bank to reduce the defaulters and the NMB keeps and check the financial records of their clients. Despite the good performance of NMB due to its credit policies, the bank had however faced some challenges’ which had hindered their operations hence this has caused bad debts in the bank. These are improper appraisal, conmen, poor supervision, political influence, weak legal system, diversion of funds, non- compliance and poor payment.
