BACKGROUND

Amret (formerly EMT) started as a microcredit project ‘Solidarity Credit’ initiated by GRET, a French NGO, in 1991. It became the first Microfinance Institution to get a formal license from the National Bank of Cambodia in 2001. It changed its name to ‘Amret’ in 2004, and became a Microfinance Deposit Taking Institution (MDI) in 2009. Today, Amret is proud to be one of the top 10 financial institutions in Cambodia with impact.  

Amret provides a wide range of financial services for low-income people as well as micro, small and medium enterprises in Cambodia- while at the same time achieving a high level of financial and social performance. More than 500,000 clients trust our services and highly value the personal relationship we have built with them. Amret has assets over USD 1 billion and deposits exceeding USD 500 million.

Amret is a subsidiary of the Advans Group, a leading international microfinance group that provide adapted financial services to low-income clients and SMEs that have limited or no access to formal banking services. Building on the group’s vision- as a major shareholder- and the two reference shareholders, FMO and IFC, Amret is committed to serve clients in a responsible and sustainable manner.

Headquartered in Phnom Penh, Amret is operating its 158 branches nation-wide with more than 4,600 committed staff members including volunteers and interns.
