  1. There is no group ledger or complex system of accounts at the level of the group. The closing balance of the loan fund is simply counted, announced, remembered by all members, and noted in a notebook at the end of each meeting. In order to track the individual savings and loan liabilities of its members, VSLAs use a simple passbook that is appropriate for groups with limited literacy and numeracy skills.
