In the fourth quarter of last year, the volume of loans issued fell by 8.8% compared to the third quarter, to 166 billion rubles, writes RBC.

According to market participants, in 2022, microfinance organizations changed their approaches to screening potential clients and reduced their risk appetite, which affected their client base.

This year, the factors that influenced the slowdown in market growth in 2022 will remain relevant: special operations of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, mobilization holidays, a new format of interaction with credit bureaus, preparation of market participants for legislative restrictions.

According to the new rules established by the Bank of Russia, from the beginning of 2023, banks can issue to clients with a debt load of more than 80%, no more than 25% of the volume of consumer loans issued. The regulator’s measures are aimed at reducing the debt burden of the population.
