Outstanding Loan Portfolio

With amounts ranging from MMK 150,000 to 1,000,000 (USD 100 to 650), loans start small but build as clients develop the capacity of their businesses. The group guarantee is ideal for clients who do not have the collateral required for traditional bank loans. Loan tenure varies from 6 to 12 months and fortnightly or monthly repayments in the community fit our clients’ busy schedules.
Shweyaung Anagat Loan

Loan amounts vary from MMK 500,000 to 10,000,000 (USD 325 to 6,500) and run for periods of 6 to 24 months. Affordable interest rates and accessible conditions make this the premiere small business loan in upper Myanmar.
Doh Taungthu Loan
Farmer Group Loan
This loan matches the terms and conditions of the Marharmate group loan but has a repayment schedule and appraisal process that better matches the needs of farming households. Clients repay the principle of their loan over installments scheduled during the harvest season.

Tha Pyay Savings Passbook
This account gives clients easy access to their savings from any Alliance branch. With minimal fees and a 10% annual interest rate, this account is great for managing the daily cash of a family or business.
Regular Tha Pyay Savings
There is also a feature for clients to make regular deposits following a plan that matches their loan repayment schedule. If clients follow the plan, they will benefit from 15% annual interest on regular deposits.
Alliance works with clients to improve their financial literacy and better manage their money. Financial education messages are built into all loan processes, using flip charts, illustrated stories and videos to pass on important lessons. This approach ensures all clients receive financial education starting from their first interactions with Alliance while reducing spent in extra training sessions. For small enterprise clients, Alliance also offers additional business management workshops for entrepreneurs who want to develop their business to the next level.
