During the first six months, the bank has provided loans for 72,000 customers worth VND2.94 trillion (US$126.52 million), equivalent to 140% of the figure recorded in the same period last year; and revenue from debt payment at VND1.66 trillion (US$71.43 million), or 114% of the same period last year.

Hanh added nearly 72,000 poor and near-poor households, as well as social beneficiaries, have borrowed loans from the bank, in turn contributing to Hanoi’s socio-economic development and reducing poverty rate.
This has also helped prevent the rise of black credit and addressed social issues.

With the funds allocated from Hanoi People’s Committee, the bank has disbursed VND650 billion (US$27.97 million) for 14,098 customers being poor and near-poor households, or social beneficiaries, helping them to resume business activities.
