BRASILIA May 27 (Reuters) - Outstanding loans in Brazil's banking system rose 0.1 percent in April from the previous month, the central bank said in a report on Wednesday.

The 90-day default ratio, the most widely followed gauge of loan delinquencies, increased to 4.6 percent last month, from 4.4 percent in March, the bank said. (Reporting by Marcela Ayres; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
