All the members in this village bank loan are end-of-term loans so they are not required to pay any principal on the loan until the very end of the loan term. The end-of-term (EoT) loan is AMK's main product because it is the most beneficial to Cambodia's poor. It allows them to repay portions of the principal whenever they are financially able to. Most clients start to make payments many months before the end of the loan term. Almost all of AMK's clients make their payments on time.
