The objective of this article is to analyze the banking sector in the Republic of Moldova in terms of financial stability indicators. Thereby the authors elucidated the main developments of banking institutions in 2014, as reflected by the deterioration of the prudential indicators of this sector. The problems in the banking sector were caused by dubious transactions of some commercial banks, as well as their plight. Despite the establishment of special administration at 3 financial institutions (B.C. „Unibank” S. A., B.C. „Banca Socială” S.A. and B.C. „Banca de Economii” S.A.), the banking sector failed to maintain a reliable activity, causing problems with bank loans.
