MSME loans get lower risk weighting

Philippines: Loans by micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that have been guaranteed by a Credit Surety Fund (CSF) Cooperative will now be considered a low-risk debt, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas said on Friday.
The policy-setting Monetary Board has approved the amendments to the risk-based capital adequacy framework for banks, the central bank noted.

The amended framework assigned a lower risk weight of 20 percent on performing loans to MSMEs guaranteed by a qualified Credit Surety Fund (CSF) Cooperative. Existing regulations provide a 75-percent risk weight to a qualified MSME portfolio.

"This policy intends to facilitate the increased flow of funds to MSMEs that will translate to the further growth of the sector and of the domestic economy," the BSP noted.

A CSF Cooperative is organized in line with Republic Act No. 10744, or the Credit Surety Fund Cooperative Act of 2015 and its implementing rules and regulations.
