Abstract

Current data on volumes of consumer credit extended in South Africa is unreliable and incomplete. This problem came about as there existed different authorities dealing with bank and non-bank credit. The South African Reserve Bank collected data from banks; Statistics SA collected data from retailers, which included sales on open account; and the Micro Finance Regulatory Council collected data from the micro-lenders. However, it is estimated that the size of the credit market is currently some R800b.
