The state-run bank is offering low-interest loans that can be repaid over 40 years.
People earning less than Bt25,000 a month will be charged a fixed 3 per cent interest for the first five years. People earning more pay 3 per cent interest for the first three years.
The bank has set aside Bt50 billion for the scheme.
Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said he would ask the GHB to consider extending the soft-loan programme for people unable to obtain one this time.
