This study examines the effect of financial performance on state-owned banks credit in Indonesia. Banks selected to be analyzed are Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), Bank Nasional Indonesia (BNI), Bank Mandiri, and Bank Tabungan Negara Indonesia (BTN). Panel data used is annual secondary data interpolated into quarterly data from Financial Services Authority, Bank Indonesia, The National Development Planning Agency or Badan Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional (Bappenas), Central Bureau of Statistics or Badan (BPS), and other official publications. The influence of independent variables to the amount of credit is estimated using multiple regression, Random Effects Model (REM). The result of the study indicates that all state-owned banks had fluctuations in financial performance growth and it is different for all banks, while the test results using semi-log panel data with REM shows that non-performing loan (NPL) variable and loan to deposit ratio (LDR) variable have a significant positive effect to the state-owned banks credit in Indonesia. Meanwhile, Return On Assets (ROA) variable has no significant effect.
