NATIONAL Commercial Bank (NCB) will launch an initiative today aimed at helping customers service their loan and credit card debts.
The bank said it is making available to customers under the three month programme, branded "We've got your back", include debt restructuring, to create more manageable payment plans and debt consolidation, whereby persons with multiple loan, credit card or other debts may combine these into one facility with one affordable monthly payment.
"NCB is aware that the current economic climate has created financial challenges for some of our customers. We have seen this demonstrated in the inability of some to meet their debt obligations in the usual manner," said Audrey Tugwell-Henry, senior general manager of NCB's retail banking division.
"We take our role as financial partner very seriously, and as such, have embarked on a campaign to assist our customers with the management of their loan and credit card debts. We want to use this opportunity to let them know that they are not alone; we are here to help and are prepared to discuss their individual situations and identify the best solution for them," she said.
Tugwell-Henry said the bank will deal with customers on a case-by-case basis over the duration of the programme, which runs up to May 31, 2013.
"It is a delicate matter and we are open to discussing reasonable proposals to meet the overall objective of restoring financial wellness to our customers. We believe in our customers' ability to weather this rough patch and we will help them to get back on track," said Tugwell-Henry.
NCB's non-performing loans — loans left unserviced for three months or more — stood at $8.8 billion at the end of December 2012 or 7.2 per cent of gross loans.
The initiative comes on the heel of Government's debt-exchange programme and massive $16-billion tax package.
