HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — More than 5,500 people in six provinces in the central and Mekong Delta regions have benefited from a programme by finance company Home Credit that offers consultacy on the legal aspects of consumer borrowing.

"Think it through, Sign it wisely" teaches people what to look for while signing a credit contract with a lender.

It has been organised through August and September for a second year after being introduced in Ha Noi and HCM City last year.

This year it will also be taken to Ca Mau, Can Tho, An Giang, Dac Lac, Hue, and Da Nang.

In another development, Home Credit has co-operated with the Viet Nam Standards and Consumers Association (Vinatas) to publish a new guidebook on personal finance.

Nguyen Manh Hung, general secretary of Vinastas, said the book is very easy to understand and hoped consumers would feel comfortable when applying for credit.

So far 8,000 books have been distributed for through supermarkets and markets. — VNS
