It is well-deserving for our shareholders, directors, executive team, heads of departments and all other staffs for their 5 years of dedication, diligence and service quality to our cherished 155,000 clients across 25 branches. We thank the Global Banking & Finance Review® for this honour, and we believe this is a feather in our cap to extend financially inclusive services to low-income clients across the country”.
Since our operation in 2015, over 322,000 financially inclusive loans amounting to MMK 147 billion have been originated and disbursed to our clients, of which 80% are women-preneurs and 77% reside in rural areas. The year 2019 was another remarkable year as Hayman has witnessed not only the geographical, clientele and loan portfolio growth but also in terms of the trust Hayman has been able to engender - as we have raised the total of MMK19.35 billion in 2019 from our debt funders: Maybank, Symbiotics, BlueOrchard Finance, and AGD Bank in enabling our micro-financing.
