The volume of the loans in RON taken up by the population in the first 11 months of the year advanced 87 per cent over the same period of 2005, such growth being the main supporter of the advance of 54 per cent of the non-governmental credit in the same reference period, shows data, Nine o'Clock reports.
The loans in lei taken up by companies also backed the general progress of the non-governmental credit, but with a lower weight. At the same time, the non-governmental credit in foreign currency recorded a more moderate growth, namely 28.4 per cent, sustained chiefly by the loans taken by population, which are up 53 per cent.
