Almost 2.1 million Poles are experiencing difficulties in paying off their debts, according to a survey conducted by economic data company BIG InfoMonitor.
In total, debt held by individual Poles currently amounts to zł.34.35 billion, and is rising by an average of zł.1.5-2 billion every three months.
Statistically, the average debtor is male, aged between 30-40, and resides in either the Silesia voivodship or Mazowieckie voivodship.
“The constant increase in the total amount of outstanding commitments is worrying. It means that the average amount of debt attributable to a single debtor continues to grow,” Marcin Ledworowski, vice president of the board at BIG InfoMonitor, told Gazeta Prawna.
