Specifically, the scale of the CI system continues to increase. By the end of August 2020, the total assets reached 12,930 trillion dong, up by 52.1 percent compared to late 2016. The financial capacity of CIs has been strengthened, and charter capital has increased gradually over the years. by the end of August 2020, the charter capital of the entire system was 629.1 trillion dong, up by 28.8 percent compared to late 2016, while the equity of the system was 1.007,7 trillion dong, up by 69.4 percent compared to late 2016.

Their network is in 62 branches and 23 provinces and cities nationwide. The activities of microfinance organisations in recent years have had certain effects in supporting and improving the lives of people, contributing to hunger eradication, poverty reduction and black credit restriction.

In particular, by the end of 2019, 18 CIs have been approved by the SBV to apply the CAR under Circular 41 before the deadline, the target of having 12 to 15 CIs meeting Basel II standards on capital safety in 2020 has been achieved. Some CIs have requested to apply CAR according to Circular 22/2019/TT-NHNN.
