  • Shows difference reason as a percentage of all reasonsOther: Centenary Bank:primary loan has a prompt payment rebate (PPR) built into it. The gross interest rate is 30.2% for product 3; and the rate (net of this PPR) is 28.5%New loans attract interest rate of 1.83% per month and a monitoring fee of 2% per month ( 24% per annum), this applies to all borrower with no existing borrowing history with Centenary Bank. The two rates are combined in amortization. In other words a periodic or monthly rate of 3.83% per month is charged on declining balance. For recurrent loan, the interest rate is 1.83% per month, Monitoring fee rate is 0.5% per month. This implies the periodic or monthly rate used for amortization is 2.33%.Habitat for Humanity:Interest rate for the 1st month is charged at 5% for the grace period, but after loan is verified and clients have complied the rate is reduced to 2% for the remaining months.

    44. 44. Summary<br />Institution cost structure: Every institution has a unique cost structure which requires a unique pricing strategy.<br />Product cost structure: Different loan products can have significantly different cost structures. It is therefore necessary to look at each loan product individually when assigning loan prices. <br />Limitations of portfolio yield: If we do not analyze costs and prices on a product-by-product basis, our overall portfolio yield may be positive, but some individual products not profitable. This can cause sustainability problems in the future.<br />Remember: Each product is unique and requires a distinct pricing strategy.<br />
