Refinancing has been and still is a financial instrument that has allowed both banks and borrowers to rescue credit contracts, especially in periods of economic crisis. The financial and banking crisis started in 2008 has led to the increasing use of this type of lending instrument, especially after 2010, both for individuals and for economic agents, using this type of loan refinancing instrument. Even though the refinancing started in the first place in the national banking system, it helped to ensure the continuity of both companies and individuals, and to prevent banks from entering as much as possible in the sphere of bad loans and unwanted expenses. In this context, we should not ignore the idea that this type of credit, together with the other types of credit instruments, can ensure the sustainability of the growth of the economic activity at the primary and secondary level, but also a sustainable nature of the financial-banking system Romanian.
