New loans made to non-financial enterprises and government institutions hit 214.2 billion yuan in October, indicating credit demand from the real economy.

Medium to long-term loans, mainly consisting of personal housing mortgages, added 371 billion yuan in October.

By the end of October, outstanding yuan loans grew 13 percent from a year earlier to 118.42 trillion yuan.
