The aim of this paper is to study the effect of the credit quality information and the guarantees strength on the level of nonperforming loans in some MENA countries. To this end we apply a dynamic panel modelling and we use annual data which covers the period 2004-2011. The empirical results show that the information credit collected by the private or the public agencies affects negatively the level of nonperforming loans. The same result was found between the level of guarantees and the level of NPLs.
