Karachi - Arabstoday

The deposits of Microfinance Banks (MFBs) of Pakistan fell by 13.9 per cent Quarter on Quarter (QoQ) to Rs8.9 billion ($104.706 million) in the Jan-Mar quarter from $121.624 million in the previous quarter, said State Bank of Pakistan’s (SBP) quarterly report on Mincrofinance. “A few MFBs booked one-month term deposit receipts (TDRs) in Dec-2010, which matured in January 2011,” the report said. “The volatility of deposits has been largely causing the negative fluctuation in the assets base of the MFBs in recent quarters.” The deposit base, however, increased 28.4 per cent Year on Year (YoY) from Rs6.93 billion in March 2010. The central bank said MFBs are entering into larger loan size slowly, but persistently. This trend continued during Jan-Mar quarter as their advances increased by 6.9 per cent despite a marginal decline of one per cent in the number of borrowers. The decline was seen as Khushhalibank Limited and First Microfinance Bank Limited had to curtail growth in certain flood-affected areas. At the same time, two district MFBs, and Pak Oman MFB continued to reduce their already thin credit portfolio owing to their internal problems.The negative trends in Non-Performing Loans (NPLs) were also attributable to the same set of factors portfolios of KBL and FMFB were hit in flood-affected areas whereas two district MFBs and POMFB contributed to NPLs due to their internal weaknesses. Three small MFBs experienced double-digit Portfolio at Risk (PAR) ratio during the quarter, though they have a relatively small portion of the overall portfolio, the SBP said. The NPLs may see further increase as some of the bullet loans in flood-affected areas were to mature in the second quarter of 2011, it added.After adjusting the outliers (floods and weak MFBs) effects, the portfolio quality remains positive, the report said. Equity reduction during the quarter was contributed by almost all MFBs.An important development during the quarter was the commencement of NRSP MFB which is expected to significantly enhance the market share of MFBs in forthcoming quarters, said the central bank.
