Asset quality

BML primarily operates in rural and semi-urban areas, serving customers engaged in agriculture and related activities. The customers are predominantly rural women borrowers who have limited sources of income, savings, and credit histories, making it difficult to consistently carry out credit risk analyses.

Even though their loans are secured against hypothecation, the hypothecated assets contain borrowers' stock, receivables, and other current assets, which fall into the higher-risk category. The gross non-performing asset (GNPA) has fallen to 1.88% as of Dec 31, 2023 from 2.42 as of FY23.

Loan maturity

As per the draft, approx. 98.00% of loan issued by the company will due within two years of disbursement. This can have both negative and positive effects. Positive in a case, the loan has less chances of getting default as the lender is in close contact with the borrower.
