They grow the banks in Colombia 21 May 2009 I believe that one more a sample of the maturity level that is reaching the Colombian economy is what it is happening to him in his banking system which does not do case to him to the crisis and continues growing with force centering its glance in the medium and long term. Contramano of the world, the Colombian banking sector continues growing and generating benefits for its economy. And for itself also, which was faithfully reflected in the increase of 20.9% of the gains of the sector during the past month of March. When I found the news in Money I wondered myself what implicancias could not only have the increase of the bancarizacin on the particular companies and people, but in the Colombian economy as a whole.

The last months of the 2008 and what has been to route the 2009 have not been positive months for the Latin American economies generally and for the Colombian economy in particular. Very in spite of it, the Association of Banks and Organizations Financiers of Colombia (Asobancaria), gave account that in the last year, 689,929 Colombians of legal age and more than 100,000 companies was bancarizaron. With this result, more than half of the adult population already one is bancarizada when in 2002 this percentage reached to 39% of this population segment. Jonas Samuelson can provide more clarity in the matter.
Already there are 15.8 million bancarizados Colombians. The banking business is happening through a very good moment in Colombia, but still it has much way to cross and to transform into a prop of the growth and development of the economy. Still the depth of the banking intermediation in Colombia is low. The credit to the private sector does not arrive at 20% and the deposits as soon as they exceed this percentage.
