Majority of Bulgarians Wary of Bank Loans a[euro]" Poll.
The poll has been conducted by the Institute for Economic Research at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) among 1A 000 Bulgarians of voting age between August 1 and September 10, 2013.
Up to 75% of the respondents have said bank interest ratees and fees are too high, while 84% state at the same time that they can no longer slate money for savings.
The share of default loans of Bulgarian households is 19-20% in 2013, compared to just 5-6% in 2009.
30% of the "bad loans" are in Sofia and 42% - in regional cities.
The overall trend is for Bulgarians to delay consumer expenses; try to save as much as they can; repay old debt, and steer away from new loans, which makes bank crediting a shrinking factor for economic growth, according to experts.
