The effect of monetary policy on the growth rate of loans was made by the two-step system GMM dynamic panel estimator over the period of 2007-2017. The findings denote that the monetary policy has the capacity to affect the growth rate of loans. Furthermore, the central bank loses degrees of freedom to affect the growth rate of bank loans in a greater concentration scenario and banks size mitigates the monetary policy shock.
