Measures to take to improve the credit history and scoring

In order to improve credit history and scoring, it is necessary to eliminate the main causes of their deterioration, in particular, to pay off current overdue obligations as soon as possible, as well as:

  • ease the credit burden by partially or fully repaying existing loans,
  • make repayments in accordance with the established schedule, excluding delays and showing punctuality,
  • reduce the given guarantees by reducing their number and amount, as well as, if available, ensuring the full repayment of overdue obligations,
  • avoid even one-day delays in fulfilling obligations on current loans and not to become a guarantor for unreliable persons,
  • avoid applying for new loans frequently.


Due to the change in the foreign exchange rate, the actual annual interest rate and the amount of loan repayments may change.  

If you fail to fulfill or incompletely fulfill your obligation, within three business days this information will be provided to the credit bureau where your credit history is formed. Having a bad credit history can negatively affect your creditworthiness in the future.

You have the right to receive your credit history report for free once a year from the credit bureau.

Your property may be confiscated by law if you fail to make your interest and loan repayments on time.

In case of insufficient funds to repay your loan liabilities, they may be repaid at the expense of your other property and/or that of the guarantor, as prescribed by the RA legislation.

In accordance with the RA Law on Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, on the basis of the Know Your Customer Principle, the Bank may require the Customer to provide additional documents or other information, as well as ask questions during verbal communication, for the purpose of conducting due diligence of the Customer.  

The Bank may collect additional information in accordance with the terms of an agreement with the US Government under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) to determine your eligibility for being a US taxpayer.

If you have applied for the loan also and exclusively for refinancing of your credit liabilities to other organizations (banks, credit organizations, etc.), we hereby warn that  you have to repay the outstanding interests, penalties service and other fees to these organizations after refinancing independently, and the Bank declaims the responsibility for the default of the payments.
