This research work will address the issue of lending problem loans (Bad debt) and also the techniques of minimizing it.
In the ordinary course of lending, Banks increase bad debt, which are charged against the income generated. Indeed many banks are at the verge of collapse, because of the impact and effects of bad debt and its ineffective management.
The nature of project writing in ordinary National Diploma level demands that the source of collecting data should be secondary, hence the researcher did not use interviews and questionnaires, but the research conducted was only limited to already published materials.
The researcher discovered that problem loans do not just occur, they are caused by variety of factors, and some are controllable while others are not.
Generally, bad debt has a negative impact in the operations of banks. It is anathema to sound banking system, therefore financial analysis must work hard to control and manage it effectively.
The researcher recommended some possible solution and suggestion on the commercial bank lending techniques and also means of controlling bad debt.
