This project work was under taken to bring out some of the problems encountered by banks a leading to their customers the result of their findings and the recommendation of how those problems will be tackled and the solution. We can find out that from this project, one of the major problems encountered by banks in leading the repayment of the loans. Borrowers especially the small scale farmers tacked away in the remote villages behaving that the loans they recurred are their share of the national cake’’ and they do not make any attempt to repay their loans.
This project being an analytical research data from secondary source were mainly used. The information came from CBN regulation, publication newspapers write ups and annual reports of some of the banks. My finding revues that most of the bank grant short term loans and they also regard the bank to prevent their statement of accounts if they do not have account with the bank to prevent a guarantor who will repay the loan if the customer were unable to met all these their requirements.
I recommend that the federal government should allow the bank a little more room to specified because most of the time when the central bank of Nigeria comes up with her credit guidelines she dose not take into consideration the loan demand situation in the areas in which various banks are located of economic situation where some banks hardly get customer.

Background of the study.

Furthermore, to the central bank of Nigeria this will be use to them because they have to adjust their already stipulated credit guideline central bank of Nigeria usually demands a minimum lending to earn sector but the merchant bank loan are mainly to the manufacturing sectors but they cant expand loans to these sectors because of CBN restrictive guideline before loans are given under the corporate impartment the purpose of the loan has to be stated, financial information has to use produced one of collateral is adequate export will be made to increase collateral offered by borrowers.
Domestic bank lending, more especially include the commercial bank merchant banks and development banks. As regards commercial bank it was observed that their prospective borrowers must have large amount of money in his/ her account before he could borrow money from them. And all these contributed a lot towards the problems facing domestic bank lending.
