The percent non-performing loans in Palestine reflects the health of the banking system. A higher percent of such loans shows that banks have difficulty collecting interest and principal on their credits. That may lead to less profits for the banks in Palestine and, possibly, bank closures.
Definition: Bank nonperforming loans to total gross loans are the value of nonperforming loans divided by the total value of the loan portfolio (including nonperforming loans before the deduction of specific loan-loss provisions). The loan amount recorded as nonperforming should be the gross value of the loan as recorded on the balance sheet, not just the amount that is overdue.
