Half of Poles indebted to banks
July 17, 2014
Nearly 50% of all Poles have some form of bank debt, the daily Rzeczpospolita reports.
Some 58% of people aged 32 to 46 have bank debt, mainly housing debt held by 54% of that age group.
Consumer debt is held mostly by the 47 to 65 year age group, where 36% have such loans, versus 30% for the 32-46 year old group.
Measured against GDP, Poland still has half the personal debt of the EU average at 34.8% versus 68.1% for the EU.
