RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 14 The number of Brazilian
corporate borrowers making consultations for potential loan
transactions with state development bank BNDES has grown since
July, a sign that a slight recovery in demand for credit may be
in the offing, Chief Executive Officer Maria Silvia Bastos
Marques said on Wednesday.
In terms of disbursements, Bastos Marques said that they are
likely to recover at a slower pace than consultations. BNDES is
Brazil's largest source of long-term funding for companies.
