    This paper studies the determinants of bank long-term loan in the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) context. The study aimed to test the common bank-level and macroeconomics determinants of bank long-term loan behavior. The model used is estimated using a sample of six countries from the CEMAC. We find that a bank¡¯s ability to extend long-term business loans depends on its size, capitalization, GDP growth and the availability of long term liabilities. These results underline the importance of supply side constraints in extending vital long-term credit to firms.
