Commercial banks have pledged to loan VND30,122 billion to 46,246 customers exceeding the capital of the program, SBV said.
 
According to regulations, SBV will stop funding commercial banks for loan disbursement under the package within 36 months starting June 1, 2013.
 
However, if the disbursement is incomplete by June 1 this year, SBV will report to the Prime Minister to consider extending the deadline until all loans will be paid out, SBV added.
