ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of internal control practices

on the performance of microfinance institutions in the Central Region of

Ghana. Primary data was gathered using questionnaires on internal controls

designed to meet the Committee of the Sponsoring Organizations of the

Treadway Commission 1992 report for microfinance institutions.The study

adopted a quantitative approach with a descriptive survey method. A primary

data were collected using self-administered questionnaires. The study revealed

that internal control systems of microfinance institutions are effective and

integrated into the daily operations of these microfinance institutions. Another

finding was that, microfinance institutions can only achieve their corporate

objectives if the internal control systems are effective. Poor internal control

systems are due to highcost involved in implementing it and small size of

organization to have an internal audit department to ensure effective internal

controls. The study recommended that there should be adequate segregation of

duties in the control activities, adequate managerial oversight and proper

policies and procedures for microfinance institutions to operate effectively to

achieve their objectives.
