This growth resulted from the Colombian operation growing at 0.4% and the Central American operation at 1.7%, growing by 3.1% in dollar terms. The structure of our gross loan portfolio remained stable when compared to the previous quarter. Commercial loans accounted for 59% of our portfolio, while our consumer and mortgage loans accounted for 31% and 9.7% respectively. Loans to individuals, which include consumer mortgage and microcredit loans were 2.1 percent points higher than a year earlier. Colombia accounted for 72% of our loan portfolio, slightly down from 73% three months earlier, and from 75% 12 months ago. The variation in weight of the Central American operation has mainly been due to the Colombian peso fluctuation. We expect 2016 loan growth in absence of FX movement to be around 8% with corporate loans growing at 7% to 8% and loans to individuals growing in the 12% to 14% range.
