According to the survey on the bank credit in the euro area on July 2018 (BLS), credit standards continued to facilitate lending to businesses, household loans for home purchases and consumer credit in the second quarter in 2018, while loan demand increased in all loans categories, thus continuing to support loan growth.

For the third quarter of 2018, banks expect further net easing of credit standards.
