Quick loan is a loan facility offered by the Retail Banking Division to the businessmen who has a sound business record for minimum 2 years (for category A) or minimum 3 years (for category B) with a valid trade license. It is a clean or unsecured loan in the sense that there is no cash security taken against the loan.

►Category “A” means who have permanent address of city or branch’s operation Area

►Category “B” means who have no permanent address of city or branch’s operation Area

This is an “any purpose” loan, which means the applicant does not have to declare the purpose for which s/he is taking the loan.

Fundamental Guidelines have been established specifically for Quick loan in order to provide a structure around which lending must be best.

  • Assess the customer’s character for interiority and repay.
  • Plan for the possibility of default.

Different Types Income Assessment


Debt Burden Ratio (DBR)

Debt Burden Ratio (DBR) is the ratio between applicants’s proven monthly income & total monthly repayments to wards all loans & credit cards.

General rules of calculating DBR for all categories:

DBR= (All existing & proposed EMI’s + 5% of credit card limit)/Net Monthly Income

It represents the portion of his/her monthly income which can be used to service the loan installments or EMI

So net income assessment is the most important factor to determine DBR correctly

Net income assessment for salaried person:

Net monthly income = gross salary – (provident fund + taxes + leave fair allowance + overtime, TA/DA, bonus, yearly, quarterly if shown in the monthly break down)

Conditions apply & statements check:

  • Daily allowance, overtime, mobile bill will not be considered for assessing net income
  • For salaried executives, statement is checked mainly to determine regularities of salary credit & to see if salary credited is line with claimed salary of letter of introduction
  • To find out if any undeclared other loans installment deducted
  • Any chq return due to insufficient fund not be considered

Net income for business person:

The following types of accounts those are considerable for assessing net income

  1. Personal account
  2. Proprietorship account
  3. Partnership account
  4. Private limited company account

Income assessment criteria through bank statement:

The way of income assessment form account statement may be two ways:

Criteria 1: income through credit turns over

Criteria 2: income through average balance

Criteria 1: income through credit turns over:

This is method may be used foe all above accounts. So income=average monthly credit turnover * the share percentile of that individual over the whole business *

Industry wise profit margin percentile

In other words

Average monthly credit turnover = summation of total monthly credits over the period (months)/total months

Revenue = average monthly credit turnover * industry wise profit margin percentile

Net income = % of revenue as per ownership documents

Not: in profit margin sheet we have found that profit margin mentioned as 10% -15%, 5%-10% etc. it mean that in same business profit vary. Some one can profit 10% some one 12% some one 15%. It may vary case to case basis because of business size, business place, business age, individual’s profit/net worth etc

Criteria 2: Income through average balance:

To save time but still determining a good indicative average balance, we will not do the averaging over the full 30 days balance of an account, instead we will take the following days of any month will be taken into consideration in order to arrive at the average valance figure for that particular month

Days of monthly 1st, 8th, 16th & 25th

Average balance for the month: total day end balance/4

Average monthly income: total months average balance/ total months

Monthly net income: average monthly income x % (discounting as expense)* incase of partnership & limited company net come will be based on % of ownership

Note: % consideration (discounting as expense)

  1. Personal A/C             : 60%
  2. Proprietorship A/C   : 60%
  3. Partnership A/C        : 60%
  4. SOD A/C                    : 60% (if the facility backed by 100% cash security)
  5. OD/CC                       : 20%
  6. Limited Company    : 20%

Finally income to be considered either criteria no. 1 or whichever is lower

Net income from CC/OD/SOD Account:

BDR= (all existing & proposed EMI’s + Monthly OD interest + 5% of credit card limit)/ net monthly income

Day End Balance of CC/OD/SOD A/C: OD limit – day end balance

OD Account Interest: monthly interest of OD account will be considered with EMI


  • To find out if any undeclared other loans installment deducted
  • At least last 6 months bank statement to be considered and/ or following PPG
  • Any check return due to insufficient fund will not be considered
  • Mode of transaction should be matched with customer’s profile

  • Trend of average monthly credit turnover and nature of transaction to be matched with nature of business

Chapter 5


Credit risk

The credit risk is managed by credit division, which is independent of sales. The following elements on tribute to the management of credit risks:

  • Repayment ability and intention of the borrower the primary factor of consideration in granting a loan will be the debt-burden ratio of the borrower. The debt-burden ratio is calculation on the basis of the net monthly income of the customers.
  • While the product is targeted at a particular market segments the risk is mitigated to some extent by the fact that these customers will have a sound credit borrowing track record of minimum 3 months with another bank.
  • Geographic location the coverage of the product will be restricted to the cities where we have branch representation: Dhaka, Chittagong and sylhet.
  • Deviations: deviations from the credit criteria have been defined and will be subject to strict monitoring.
  • Exposure per customer: exposure per customer is capped in the basis of his/her credit card limit.
  • MIS is maintained: on portfolio mix (to identify concentrations)



The political situation in Bangladesh continues to remain confrontational among title major parties. There is frustration that the political leadership, both in power and those in opposition, has been unable to work together to end the impasse created by the public sectors extreme inertia and weak capacity.


Relationship with neighboring countries is fairly good at present. Risk of external threats can be considered to be negligible.


Loan applications are processed for approval according to criteria established in this product program guide. Account solicitation, approvals and disbursement sanction authorities are as per the operation manual.


All signed customer documentation is maintained by the centralized loan administration department in fore resistance filing cabinets inside the strong room under dual control. The bank’s legal counsel has vetted all documents.


The operating procedures, work flows, reconciliation checks, controls as well as MIS and reporting are being detailed in the operation manual. These should be done by loan administration department.


While we are obtaining the necessary documents to ensure accuracy information provided by the applicant on the application from there is a risk of fraud. To mitigate this, the following checks are carried out

  • Telephone verification of residence address
  • Monitoring of loan portfolio outstanding on a regular basis

Chapter 6



In my learning period I found some problems, in retail Banking. That’s as Follows:

  • High Interest Rate.
  • High Rate of processing fee against loan.
  • A/C maintains fee is so high.
  • Lack of manpower in retail Banking is a big problem. The manpower of that section is not sufficient for prompt service.
  • Lack of promotional initiatives to expand the Service.
  • From the previous years it has been observing that frequently the loan hidden cost increasing and customers suffers most.
  • Government new regulations like as Reduce Interest Rate is not affective..
  • In a organization job satisfaction is a fact. Employees of that department should not satisfy so this is a great problem that I face.


BRAC bank is a progressive commercial bank in banking sector. Quick Loan department is a important part in this BANK. But Quick Loan Department is not fully computerized as yet. So, it is very difficult to find any thing within a very short period for quick customer service. To improve their Quick Loan customer service and to, the following recommendation can be suggested.

  • Computer facility in all sector: Now a day, to survive  in the competitive market, bank  has to provide various facilities to satisfy the customer, the service should be swiftly, timely, accurately and good behavior pattern. And to provide these facilities to the customer, computer is a must. Because by maintaining registers or by keeping information manually it is not possible to provide swift and accurate facilities to the customer. Therefore there should be computer in every desk in  Quick Loan Department
  • Immediately increase the salary of the employee.

Higher Rate of Interest for Loan

Clients generally complain that rate of interest for various types of Loan are quite high. In many cases productivity from loaned investment is inadequate that borrower become incapable in repaying loan.

Irregularity in providing loan

Usually banks are responsible to provide loan to those who are eligible for the loan. But in reality, small investors do not get the loan easily. They have to fulfill more terms & conditions. That irregularity in providing loan is not ethical, banks all rules and regulations are equal for every one or every parties.

Diversify the loan facility

Bank can provide long term loan, loans fir highway and high rise constructions of to provide agriculture sectors, which can also help the economy as well.
