BOGOTA Feb 20 (Reuters) - Colombia's central bank kept its key lending rate unchanged for a sixth straight month on Friday, as economic growth slows in the face of depressed oil prices.

The seven-member board voted to maintain the lending rate at 4.5 percent, meeting the forecast of all analysts in a Reuters survey this week. (Reporting by Bogota newsroom)
