There are 3 repayment formats as follows**1. Amortizing repayment:** Gradually repay the principle. Investors will receive both principal and interest repayments in each installment. There are 2 subtypes:

- Equated repayment: repaying equal amounts of principal in each installment. For example, paying 10,000 THB every month over the loan period.
- Step-up repayment: increasing the principal amount at predetermined intervals. For example, paying 10,000 THB for 6 months and then increasing it to 20,000 THB for the following 6 months.

**2. Bullet repayment:** Repay the entire principle amount when it matures.

Investors will receive the principal repayment on the last installment and the interest according to the schedule either one-time interest, quarterly interest or monthly interest. Commonly found in short bond term with maturities of 2-6 months.

3. Hybrid repayment: Initially paying only the interest on a loan, and subsequently repaying both the principal and interest in later stages. For instance on the 1-3 installments only the interest is repaid, and starting from installment 4 onwards, both interest and principal are repaid.
