A quarter of adult Russians have credits in operation, 10 percent of our compatriots plan to take out loans during the next year — in 2012 the indicator of “credit activity” of citizens returned on the pre-crisis level, it is marked by the Public Opinion Fund where thematic public inquiry was held.

According to research data, among people intending to borrow means the youth under 35 years prevails and people already have a credit, are mostly in the age category from 36 till 54 years.

The consumer credit in shops (home appliances purchase etc.), mortgage and cash for urgent needs interest Russians equally. The amount of those who plan to buy a car on credit and to issue a credit card is less.

Thus almost half of respondents – 42 percent — consider that now it is not the best time to take out a loan. Those who think in opposite way are only 13 percent.
