The FTSE 100 Company now forecast to make losses of 80 m Euro to 12 m Euro. After its discussion collection rates fall down to 57% and compared with a 90% rate in 2016.

Bradford-based Provident recently switched the way it's collected its loans. Hence replacing the self-employed agents with the "customer experience managers."

Its chief executive has given the resignation.

The company has some 2.5 million customers. Many of whom would not applicable for a standard banking loan and are thus separated as "sub-prime".

On Tuesday's 66% fall down left Provident shares at just 598.5p. Three months ago they were rate to £31 apiece.

Invesco Asset Management and Woodford Investment Management own about 40% of the group between both of them.

Neil Woodford is the investor at Woodford Investment Management. He said he was "truly discouraged" but considers that it would finally get back on the path.

"This business has been around for more than a hundred years and I consider it will be around for many years to come," he added. Invesco refused to point.

Agent loss from the bank:

The past manager known as Mike Thompson. He said: "The previous Home Credit model, using local owner agents who were friends and relatives of the customers, insures reasonable correct purchasing.

"The Outline of customer experience manager’s working on phone apps. It means that the all-important relation between agent and customer has been in busting condition."

Provident had already faded up conditions with its new system in the month of June.

At the same time, Provident said not ample of its self-employed discussion collectors had tested to become hired by the company.

It had also been less useful at grabbing money and selling new loans. It will also have a greater number of agents than normal had remaining.

The company said then it expecting benefits to be £60 m at its consumer credit part.

Very disappointed fact:

Provident is experimenting "a deep and fast review of home credit's work", and will not now pay the acting part it assured just a month ago.

It is others part of Vanquis Bank. The sub-prime car loan business Moneybarn and user credit brand Satsuma are trading in line with forecast.

Hence Vanquis has been under inspection by watchdog the Financial Conduct Authority. Hence it matters about one of its products.

Provident agreed to stops all sales and is pending the profit of that inquiry. Thus this agrees the maximum profit from customer experiencing work.
