ABTRACT
The study aimed to test the effectiveness of the interest rate on bank lending behaviours and how it affects the lending behaviour of Enterprise bank in Nigeria. The model used is estimated using enterprise bank (Heritage) loan and advancement (LOA) and other determinants or variable such as their volume of deposit (Vd) Interest (lending) rate (Ir) between the period of 2006 – 2013. the model hypothesis shows that there is functional relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variables. From the regression analysis, the model was found to be significant and its estimators turned out as expected and it was discovered that bank deposit have the greatest impact on their lending behaviour. The study then suggests that bank should focus on mobilizing more deposits as this will enhance their lending performance and should formulate critical, realistic and comprehensive strategies and financial plan.
