About the APR

The APR represents the annual rate charged by banks for lending to the public, expressed as a percentage of the yearly cost of funds over the term of the loan.

It includes the interest rate and all other charges applicable against a credit (e.g. insurance fee, processing fee, commitment fee, income foregone on mandatory security deposits, etc.).

The APR reflects the true cost of borrowings from banks by the public, and it is a linear combination of the Ghana Reference Rate (GRR), risk premium and all other charges.
