Vītoliņa said that the amount of money in non-bank loans issued in the first half of this year decreased by 20%, which is a drop of approximately EUR 60 million and a 30% drop in the number of loans issued. She said it is likely that people in this unstable situation do not want to take on additional financial commitments.
At the same time, the return of loan amounts improved by 1% in the first half of the year, said the head of the center.
Baiba Vītoliņa also said that around 20 of the non-bank lenders currently on the market could not continue their work next year. This is related to a change in license pricing which will not be affordable for many companies.
