Expansion of bank lending to Peru's private sector continued to accelerate through mid-March, according to central bank BCRP's latest figures.
Lending to the private sector expanded by 19.3% annually through March 15, compared with 19.1% at the end of February and 17.8% at end-December 2010.
The BCRP has been trying to address inflationary concerns by putting the brakes on credit expansion through a variety of measures, including higher reserve requirements.
The central bank has said it wants lending to the private sector to expand at an annual rate slower than 20%.
