Héctor Grisi, Banco Santander México's Executive President and CEO, commented: "This past quarter was quite challenging, as we began seeing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Mexican economy, our business and, of course, our financial results. Despite these adverse developments, our bank remains strong and focused principally on three key areas: first, executing our strategy to support customers and minimize the impact of the pandemic on their finances; second, closely monitoring the asset quality of our portfolio; and third, continue strengthening our capital and liquidity levels, which remain solid and well above minimum regulatory levels.
During the second quarter, loan volumes grew over 7% year-over-year, while we experienced a shift in our portfolio mix toward lower yielding segments. Consumer and SME loans started to contract, in line with market trends. Although asset quality deteriorated only slightly in the quarter, we decided to book precautionary loan loss provisions of Ps.3.9 billion in addition to normal quarterly provisions, in preparation for higher future losses. On the other hand, total deposits continued to expand, increasing 9.5% during the quarter, with individual demand deposits growing at 23%, driven partly by our promotion campaigns and strengthening our liquidity profile.
The solid growth in our retail deposits also reflects our ongoing investments to enhance our bank's value offering, including better digital experiences for customers. In this new environment, the use of digital channels has increased steadily, with digital sales almost doubling and now accounting for 44% of total product sales. These investments have also strengthened customer loyalty, helping us make significant progress in expanding our base of both loyal and digital customers.
In response to the current health and economic crisis, we have acted swiftly and decisively to fortify our bank, with the goal of mitigating its impact on our operations and customers' finances. In addition to maintaining protocols and measures that help safeguard our employees and customers, we have continued serving clients with high standards at our branches and via digital channels. Our bank is well-positioned to help support customers as they recover from this unprecedented crisis. That confidence lies in our strong capital base and high levels of liquidity, which will allow us to effectively meet the complex and temporary challenges that we are facing."
