Girlfriends loan from Thaksin government

Recommended Posts

So my Gf tells me her mom needs to pay back a loan from when Thaksin ruled. There are some things that i need to understand and even though her English is ok she is making me more confused. Every year she needs to put in 25000 bht in bank and then after 2 weeks she gets this money again. Im asking her why? Isnt it easier to just continue to pay of 400bht every month? She says if she does this she doesnt have to pay interest. Im telling her that theres no bank in the world that would let people borrow money for 1 year and if you put it back 2 weeks before the year has ended, then you dont have to pay the interest rate. She tells me many in Thailand are doing the same so i hope that someone has some a wife or gf, that can explain this phenomenon to me. This is not an trust issue btw.

Nothing you need to understand, it's not your loan, so don't pay it.

Im getting back the money after 2 weeks sohis isnt a trust thing. I trust her but i need to understand what she isnt able to tell me.

There'll be an excuse why you don't get the money back.

Holy cow Batman, it's almost like I'm psychic and can know the future!

Oh i know. I already warned her for that and told her if theres any excuse that she couldnt get the money out again etc then this would be the end. But i have a good and stable relationship so 25000bht i have. Its still not an issue but its more about the logics

I may be wrong, but I'm prepared to bet money she wants 25k more than a 'stable relationship'.

Lol. lets get this straight. I had an Bar in her name. Licenses, contracts etc in her name. All new and worth 400000bht. I sold it after i understood that being drunk 6 weeks in a row wasnt me. Not once did she protest and said its you money so you do what you want. She is the only girl that when i call her she answers in 2 second on videocall and i see her work in theirs familys field. not 2 min but 2 sec so i have a good relationsship with someone i trust after 8 years in Thailand. And i had a couple of the bad batches for sure 🙂

I've never heard of any such kind of financial arrangement for Thais involving government loans.

Is it not one of those Village loan schemes,Thaksin gave a lot of money

out to the Villages,as he was using Taxpayers money to buy votes for himself.

I don't know the details but I have heard the same story many times over the years from Thai people living upcountry.

 

It has to do with the village fund.

I don't get why you've posted here.

You say you trust her, it's a piffling sum if you have 400K to play around with bars with; if you can afford to take that loss, lend it to her, have a good few weeks, if you get it back, no harm, no foul.

If you don't get it back and can't afford to take such a hit, then maybe you should be looking at a different life. 

If you're asking about the nature of the loan, that may be difficult as Thaksin tried so many schemes to try and buy popularity (remember the buying Liverpool scam?) and frankly it was difficult to keep up with the villain and his weekly schemes/scams/frauds....
