The bank will also offer personal-loan customers to suspend payback loan for the first three months. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will get a 1 per cent reduction on the interest rate and loan payback extended for six months.

Kasikorn Bank has offered to suspend loan payback for up to 12 months for its customers whose businesses have been impacted by the floods.
