[EN] This paper studies the determinants of borrowing costs for real-sector firms. First, the borrowing rate, firm balance sheet, and income statements are matched at the firm-level. Then, controlling for key macroeconomic variables such as real GDP growth, portfolio inflows, and monetary policy stance, the effect of firm characteristics on the borrowing rate is studied. The results show that firms face financial frictions in that their balance sheet conditions matter for the borrowing costs. Less indebted firms, firms with higher fixed assets, larger firms, and firms with better growth prospects receive loans at more favorable terms. Moreover, a rise in the net portfolio inflows is estimated to reduce the loan rates at the firm-level. Finally, the results show micro-level evidence that a tightening in the policy rate leads to a rise in the loan rates, underlining the effectiveness of credit channel of monetary policy.
