The main solution to improve the quality of short-term loans for small and medium-sized enterprises at Bank for Investment and Development - 6

The ratio of short-term loans to SMEs on mobilized capital reflects the ability of the Branch to lend short-term loans to SMEs on mobilized capital. From the table, we can see that short-term loans to SMEs account for a very large proportion of the branch’s total mobilized capital. This target is achieved as follows: in 2009 it was 78.86%; in 2010 was 82.34% ; in 2011 was 75.69%. Thus, it can be seen that short-term lending to SMEs is the main lending activity of BIDV Quang Tri. However, this ratio too high is also not good for the Branch.

– Firstly, when investing in a field that is too large, then the diversification of investment will be very low, leading to risks for the Branch when the economy has some disadvantage.

– Second, the large concentration of short-term loans to SMEs will also affect the structure of capital mobilization to match short-term lending activities and ensure interest payment for customers depositing next to them. It also generates profits for the Branch.

2.2.9. Credit cycle analysis

Maybe you are interested!

This indicator measures the speed of capital turnover of the branch, reflecting how quickly or slowly the loan capital is turned over. The higher the turnover ratio, the better debt collection, the investment capital is not stagnant and improves the efficiency of capital use.

Based on the above data, it can be seen that the credit turnover for SMEs is relatively high at around 2 rounds in the period 2009 – 2011. This is because after the 2008 crisis, the Branch restricted long-term loans. For SMEs, the average loan balance decreases while the debt collection volume increases. Therefore, the credit turnover in 2009 is 1,911 rounds. By 2010, the Branch had started to make long-term loans to SMEs, leading to a rapid increase in average outstanding loans, so the growth rate of SME credit turnover still increased but tended to slow down, reaching 2,083 rounds and 2,205 respectively. rounds in 2010 and 2011.

Table 2.15 : Short-term credit turnover of SMEs (2009 – 2011)

Item 2009 2010 2011

Revenue from short-term debt collection SMEs671.251134.341476.52
Average short-term debt balance SMEs446.02618.505758.15
SME short-term credit turnover (round)1.5051.8341,948

In 2009, when the Branch restricted long-term lending to SMEs, it switched to focusing on short-term loans. This caused the average balance of short-term loans to SMEs in 2009 to increase dramatically, so the short-term SME credit turnover at 1,505 rounds was lower than the SME credit turnover.

However, in 2010 this ratio tends to increase gradually and is close to the SME credit turnover, in 2011 because the effect of the growth rate of short-term debt collection SME is much larger than the growth rate. increase in average short-term loans to SMEs. Specifically, the short-term credit turnover of SMEs in 2010 was 1,834 rounds and in 2011 was 1,948 rounds.

Through the above data table and analysis, we can see that the short-term credit turnover of SMEs has been more or less affected by the change of the branch’s lending strategy to SMEs. Although it is increasing over the years from 2009 to 2011 showing an increase in short-term lending efficiency, it is still low compared to SME credit turnover, so measures are needed to improve the turnover rate. more short-term loans.

2.3. Evaluation of the quality of short-term lending activities for small and medium-sized enterprises at Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam – Quang Tri Branch

Through the analysis and evaluation of each criterion, I give an overview of the quality of short-term loans to small and medium-sized enterprises at Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam – Quang Tri Branch in the period 2009 – 2011 through SWOT matrix.


3.1. Solutions to promote strengths to seize opportunities

Currently, BIDV’s lending process for corporate customers is very strict. Clearly defining the responsibilities and functions of each department in each step should have well limited overdue debt. With the current competitive economic situation, banks have to seize their own business opportunities. Therefore, branches should simplify loan procedures, reduce loan processing time, and cut costs. reduce unnecessary steps but still have to be on the basis of credit safety.

– Improve the lending process to shorten the loan period and improve the quality of customer service.

The bank should set up a data center on businesses in the area that have registered for operation (linked with the Department of Planning and Investment, the Department of Taxation) to provide a list of businesses, as well as tax codes, operating capital, etc. regulations, … When businesses come to borrow capital, the credit officers only need to submit and process some other documents (economic contracts, invoices…).

The number of documents when doing procedures is too complicated, so simplifying by cutting some unnecessary papers can be reduced.

3.2. Solutions to promote strengths and reduce risks

With loan products and services short-term enterprises are relatively diverse and can serve the borrowing needs of enterprises. Marketing activities are activities that have a great influence on loan expansion. Currently, almost all marketing activities at the Branch do not have a specialized department, only doing general work, so it has not created competitiveness for the Branch.

Establishing and developing a Marketing department

The Branch established and developed a specialized department in the field of marketing in order to capture the market share of deposits as well as loans and promote the branch’s brand in the locality. Actively seek and establish credit relationships with new units, not passively waiting for customers to apply for a loan.

The fact that a bank introduces a new product that creates an advantage for the bank is only temporary in a relatively short time, it is easy for other competitors to imitate and provide similar products. . Therefore, the marketing department must constantly search for customers’ tastes in general and the short-term needs of SMEs in particular to offer products and services that meet customer needs. branch in the province.

In addition, the Branch expressed its interest in SMEs and always sought ways to create comfort for customers every time they came to the bank. By way, the Branch should organize a customer conference every year to receive customers’ opinions on problems in credit, service attitude of the Bank’s officers and employees, etc., so that the Branch can be timely. fix, adjust and perfect.

In addition, it also helps the Branch understand its investment goals and needs, proactively advise customers on production expansion (open more industries to take advantage of existing resources, introduce new technologies, etc.) ) to develop more borrowing needs.

3.3. Solutions to overcome weaknesses to take advantage of opportunities

– Improve credit policy, suitable to the current situation of small and medium enterprises:

Banks diversify forms of credit guarantees to adapt to the characteristics of SMEs.  Loan guarantee policy:

Banks can consider projects that are feasible, effective, have the ability to repay, boldly lend without collateral or with only 50% of the loan amount.

And allows businesses to mortgage with assets formed from loans.

In the coming time, when the Credit Guarantee Fund comes into operation, businesses will have more opportunities with loans from banks.

Application of flexible security measures: BIDV needs to flexibly apply various forms of loan security such as pledged assets, mortgages, third-party guarantees, assets formed from loans, inventory of raw materials, etc. warehouse, shipment management, debt collection rights, etc., combined with unsecured lending on the basis of the effectiveness of the investment project/business plan and the business ranking results.

3.4. Solutions to overcome weaknesses to prevent threats

In order to reduce the ratio of short-term loans to SMEs to mobilized capital in order to diversify investment fields, the Branch must take measures to increase mobilized capital. – Branches that need to expand more transaction offices in Lao Bao districts and Quang Tri town:

Lao Bao is a large commercial center that is growing more and more with many supermarkets, and commercial centers of neighboring countries such as Laos, Thailand … domestic and provincial customers often go back and forth. many businesses were born, but there is not a single BIDV office there.

Quang Tri town is the second center of the province after Dong Ha city, developing mainly in agriculture and commerce but still does not have BIDV’s office, many customers in Quang Tri town have relationships with BIDV. have to travel a long distance to get to the branch, thus causing disadvantages to customers.

Branches need to study locations to set up more representative offices in those districts. However, it is necessary to consider the cost of establishment, to ensure that the apparatus must be very streamlined, the service is adequate to ensure the goal of expanding the deposit mobilization network of many subjects.

In addition, the Branch should develop the receipt and payment of savings deposits at home at the request of customers via telephone, Internet. Because these forms will meet the needs of customers who want to avoid the risk of carrying on the road.

– Strengthening measures to prevent risks (especially for Group 5 debt).

Strengthen the ability to prevent and control risks in lending activities. To prevent risks, the Branch annually makes a provision for risks. The amount of provision for risks is deducted at a certain rate for each group of debts and is used to compensate for the occurrence of risks. For group 5 debts, the provision of 100% may still have other losses that have not been provisioned, such as costs of pursuing litigation, handling security assets, etc. Therefore, it is necessary to set a provision greater than 0% for group 1 debts and more than 100% for group 5 debts.

In monitoring loan utilization, loan officers should also be on the lookout for problem loans, such as signs that a problem loan is usually:

– The enterprise is late to repay loans and principals to customers.

– Reduced deposit balance.

There is a change in the management structure of the enterprise.

– Enterprises delay submitting periodic reports.  Increase in receivables (because that means the business has not yet collected money).

When detecting the above signs, the branch should notify and coordinate with the enterprise to take timely measures to solve the above situations, overcome difficulties in business operations of the enterprise.

– Strengthening internal control. In order to improve credit quality in general and short-term credit in particular, the Branch is not only interested in expanding credit activities but also must pay due attention to inspection and control to reduce overdue debts and doubtful debts.

The mentioned inspection and control work is not merely to check customers, but more importantly, it is necessary to inspect and supervise the work of credit officers and leaders to help them fully comply. fully in accordance with professional processes and regulations, ensuring safe and effective business in accordance with the law. Therefore, regularly inspecting and evaluating, cultivating ethics for employees: whatever it is, it is necessary to have professional ethics and a high sense of responsibility in an environment that is easy to be tempted by money. coax. For officials who violate ethics, it is necessary to have strict handling measures to avoid the next case.

– Continuously improve the quality of staff. Regularly create conditions for staff to study, improve their professional qualifications and understanding in banking operations and the current economic situation. Organize training courses on credit operations, appraisal… Depending on the objectives, the fields of financing, the credit sectors account for a large proportion of the banking sector (such as the construction industry, commerce, etc.), but organize training for staff specialized in that field. With this solution, it is possible to reduce work pressure for staff, improve analysis skills, and limit subjective risks.

There is a clear reward and discipline policy for employees.

Thereby, improving the sense of responsibility, limiting the negative arising from the staff.

– Enterprises borrow capital regularly, but are not eligible for a credit line.

And the interest the Bank will collect after calculating on the stable balance, according to the formula:

Loan interest = Loan amount x Loan interest rate x Loan term

Banks earn interest by:

– Debit to deposit account – Credit to the Bank’s income account.

– In case the customer’s account does not have enough balance for the bank to collect the debt or interest, the bank may consider extending the debt to the customer. If the customer does not extend the debt, the bank will convert the principal or interest to overdue debt and apply the penalty of overdue interest to urge the customer to pay the debt. – Loans according to credit lines (rotating loans) – Subjects of application: Credit line loans are usually applied to businesses that need to borrow capital regularly, have business characteristics, and are The capital transfer is not suitable for the one-time lending method, which has a good reputation with the bank.

– Interest collection: At the end of each month, the bank will calculate interest according to the cumulative method. – If the credit line is still available, the bank will collect interest by debiting the circulating loan account.
