Activity jumped 12.3% in November compared to last year in the corresponding period. Or rather”rebound”: the production tended to stagnate in recent months. In terms of volumes, the sector is worth 3,405 million euros in November, against 3,031 million euros a year earlier.” The market is recovering but remains very degraded: at the end of November, the cumulative production of the last twelve months was still -14.3% lower than the point reached in September 2008,” says the ASF.

In conventional credit transactions, the numbers still remain good. The credits allocated? They are up 4.5%. Renewable credits? 3.5% increase. Personal loans? + 16%.

For memory,

  • The appropriations allocated are loans directly linked to a conso project (the execution of works for example);

  • They are different from personal loans, which do not require explanations from borrowers when they apply to their bankers;

  • As for revolving credits, they offer a reserve of money available at any time. You repay the loan only when you use all or part of the amount made available.
