Microfinance institutions (MFIs) in Cambodia have restructured almost $500 million in loans for nearly 120,000 borrowers, a move the banks claim helped ease the burden on clients facing Covid-19 financial pressures.
Cambodia Microfinance Association (CMA) head of communications Kaing Tongngy said 137,158 clients had applied for credit restructuring as of Sunday. Of that, 118,182, or 90 per cent, were approved for $488 million.
