Latest figures indicate the domestic revival remains weak.
The pace of contraction in business lending declined slightly, with Reserve Bank figures showing that companies borrowed $72.3 billion in August, a decrease of 7% on the same month a year ago.
The pace of agricultural lending increased by 2% to $47.9 billion.
Seasonally adjusted total household lending rose more than 2% to $181.3 billion in August, but it was the lowest increase since the series began in 1991.
The rise reflects demand for housing credit, offsetting a fall in consumer financing.
