    What is the definition of NPA? Non Perfoming Accounts? Is this based on the actual shillings ie, total non performing shillings/total loans in shillings or is this a simple % based on the number of accounts? If it is a shilingi metric, how do you make any money when 67%+ of your accounts hazileti intreast? Wow!.
