According to him, the growth dynamics of the organisation's credit portfolio remains positive.
"The most dramatic growth was recorded between 2005 and 2009. We even managed to maintain positive dynamics in the period of global economic crisis that is also observed today. Our goal is to increase our credit portfolio to 200 million by the end of 2013," Sane noted.
According to him, the quality of credit portfolio of the non-bank credit organisation is also at high level.
