Loan repayment

The following repayment options are available for the borrowers:

  • principal is repaid in equal monthly instalments, while interest amount decreases with the repayment of a principal. Therefore, monthly repayments will decrease over the loan tenor
  • repayments are calculated on annuity basis, where both principal and interest monthly repayment amounts change over the loan tenor, while the total monthly repayment amount remains constant

If the borrower does not pay the interest and loan principal amounts in time, information about credit history will be submitted to the Central Bank of Armenia and ACRA Credit Reporting CJSC within 3 business days of credit facility overdue, resulting in negative impact on borrower’s credit history, should the borrower decide to apply for another loan in the future. In case of existence the reporting is applicable for guarantors and co-borrowers as well.

In case loan monthly repayments are not processed in line with the loan schedule and loan agreement and in case you do not properly meet your loan obligations, your property may be repossessed and you may be deprived of your rights over it.

Interest amount calculation

Interest amount will be calculated on a daily basis by using the following formula:

I = R*L/365, where

I = one day interest amount

R = current interest rate

L = outstanding amount of loan
