If you are a DAWN client, here are some topics you should know and understand:

2. Your personal information is protected.

DAWN treats your personal information as private and confidential. We will not share it with any third parties, except to a credit bureau or similar data-sharing platform to prevent over-indebtedness, or to comply with requirements from government authorities.

Reminder: If you are a group leader, you also have a responsibility to keep your group members’ information safe and private.

3. Protect yourself from deceptive marketing and fraud.

DAWN will never force or deceive you into taking our products. Protect yourself and watch out for people or organizations who are:

  • Knowingly providing products that clients cannot afford or are unsuited to their circumstances and needs.
  • Purposely lowering stated product prices or disaggregating interest to make their products seem less expensive.
  • Offering clients of other MFIs larger loans without doing a thorough repayment capacity check.
  • Marketing products in front of branches of other MFIs, especially when they actively discredit other MFIs’ pricing or credit methodology as “more expensive.”
  • Bothering customers repeatedly, soliciting customers and following up every day, promoting their product as limited time offer.

Also be aware of imposters or fake accounts claiming to be DAWN. We are very disciplined about our loan evaluation process and will never approve loans over social media, nor ask you to transfer money. If you encounter anyone or any pages representing themselves falsely as DAWN, please contact us immediately so we can take action.
