In the first seven months of this year, loans under those credit programmes totalled 653.29 billion VND (28.05 million USD), with 20,410 poor households and social policy beneficiaries receiving loans.

Some credit programmes recorded strong growth, notably those targeting families near the poverty line or just escaping poverty, households engaging in production and business in disadvantaged areas, along with programmes for clean water and rural environmental hygiene.

Credit of social policy programmes has helped create jobs for 614 workers and 29 disadvantaged students continue their studies.

Thousands of households in remote and disadvantaged areas received loans to start their business, thereby overcoming their difficulties and raising their livelihoods.
