YEREVAN, December 12. /ARKA/. Loans extended by “Areximbank – Gasprombank Group” closed joint stock company to small and medium enterprises (SME) grew over the last two years from 3,800mln to 7,400mln drams, said head of SME credit department of the bank Martin Torosyan.

Usually, when economic crisis is escalating, banks toughen their lending rules to reduce risks.
But now the situation has changed, and SME financing started developing again, Torosyan said.
Torosyan also mentioned that SME is a priority segment for the bank, as small and medium enterprises are the back bone of any economy.
