According to the bank, the performance in January was pushed by the financing conceded to the industry and the exports and infrastructure sectors.

Meanwhile financing for exports reached US$ 623 million, 116% more than in the same period last year.


The infrastructure sector, in its turn, received loans of US$ 394.3 million, an increase of 186% in comparison to the same month in 2004.


For the micro, small and medium sized companies the BNDES loaned US$ 424.7 million in January, an increase in 11% in relation to the same period last year.


The financial institution which intermediated the BNDES resources the most in January was the bank Bradesco, followed by the Bank of Brazil, the Safra Bank, the DaimlerChrysler Bank and the bank Unibanco.
