LIMA, April 9 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank left the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 3.25 percent on Thursday, as the bank weighed anemic economic growth with fears of stoking inflation.

The market had widely expected a hold after inflation crept up recently, testing the upper limit of the bank's tolerance range in March. (Writing by Rosalba O'Brien; Editing by Ken Wills)
