The loans constitute a key investment of the Fund. Therefore, there is the need to ensure that this investment yields significant and impressive returns. The interest realized on loans are distributed to members (including loan beneficiaries) as returns on their investments. Less than fifty percent of members access loans from the Fund.

This implies that majority of members contribute purposely towards retirement. Therefore if the Fund earns nothing or insignificant returns on the loans, exit packages for members will be negatively affected.

Currently, the GNAT Mutual Fund charges an interest rate of 1.33 % monthly or 16% per annum on loans using the reducing balance method. This implies that interest is charged on the remaining principal.
