Jorbies Microfinance refunds GH¢18,000 to clients
The refund was necessitated after the arrest of Mr Jordan Larbi, the Managing Director of Jorbies Microfinance Company Limited.
Nii Bi Ayi-Bontey, the Legal Counsel for Jorbies Microfinance Company, made this known at a media briefing at Agona Swedru.
He said the company did not run away as being speculated but had a problem with the landlord which forced them to close the office.
Nii Ayi-Bontey said the company left Agona Swedru in 2013 as a result of administrative and other lapses beyond their control.
He said Jorbies Microfinance Company had never abandoned their customers adding that it would be re-branded and come back to work in the area to improve the local economy.
The Managing Director was arrested by the Agona Swedru Divisional Command of the Bureau of National Investigations after various reports were lodged with the Command by disappointed customers.
The Jorbies Microfinance Company owed 25,000 Ghana cedis to its numerous customers but only GH¢18,000 had been paid to the 58 customers.
The Legal Counsel said it was not the intention of the company to cheat the traders and other investors in and around Agona Swedru.
Nii Ayi-Bontey said Jorbies was a credible company and was set up to help women and other potential investors in the area to grow their businesses and better their living conditions.
