The quality of Russias unsecured consumer loans is satisfactory, the chairwoman also said.

Growth of unsecured consumer loans is slowing down, we see it as a positive trend considering the sectors potential risks We will watch the dynamics of unsecured consumer lending closely and adjust our approaches if necessary The quality of the loans is satisfactory yet, there is some worsening, but it is really small and does not raise our concerns.
