SVP Reponses to the Review of the Consumer Protection Code for Licence Moneylenders
SVP has continually expressed concern about the prevalence of high-cost borrowing from licenced moneylenders among the people they assist, many of whom vulnerable and trying to cope on a limited weekly income. Given the vulnerable and stressful situations, people are faced with, the proportionately large amounts of credit available, and interest rates up to and over 200% are therefore predatory and exploitative. We, therefore, welcome the opportunity to respond to the proposed enhanced protection measures outlined in the Review of the Consumer Protection Code for Licensed Moneylenders.
