Abstract: This paper explores the existence of a bank lending channel for Bolivia. The estimates used panel data through GMM and fixed effects model. The results show that changes in monetary policy have direct effects on the banks’ loans supply, because increases in the securities’ supply lead to reductions in loan growth. Moreover, interactions size and capital of entities with variable monetary policy would reflect the existence of different bank’s reactions
