Decline in small-loan balance

OUTSTANDING loans extended by China’s micro-credit companies totaled 929.3 billion yuan (US$137 billion) at the end of September, data from the central bank showed yesterday.

The volume was down 11.1 billion yuan from the end of 2015.

At the end of September, there were 8,741 micro-credit companies in China, the People’s Bank of China said in a statement on its website.
