According to the NBKI, 28,335 consumer loans were issued in Tatarstan in June. Their number increased compared to May by 4.2%.

“After a sharp drop in March-April 2022, the average amount of consumer loans in the following months returned to the level at the beginning of the year. Moreover, this happened against the background of a significant increase of the issuance of consumer loans in April-June, which is mainly due to the reduction of the key rate of the Bank of Russia and the subsequent reduction of market rates, “explained Aleksey Volkov, the marketing director of NBKI .

In general, according to 4 thousand creditors who transfer information to the NBKI, in June 2022 the average amount of loans issued for the purchase of consumer goods amounted to 232.2 thousand rubles. Compared to May, it increased by 25.5%.

The average amount of consumer credit exceeds January figures

So, according to the National Bureau of Credit History (NBKI), in February of this year it exceeded 245.1 thousand rubles, and in January — 201.7 thousand.

A noticeable decrease in the average size of consumer credit in Tatarstan was recorded in the spring, after the start of the special military operation and the subsequent sanctions attack by the West. In June, it increased for the first time since the beginning of spring.
