SANTIAGO, April 1 (Reuters) - Chile's central bank only considered keeping its key lending rate on hold last month, underlining that dynamic domestic demand and activity present risks going forward, the minutes of March's monetary policy meeting showed on Monday.

All five members of the bank's governing board voted to keep the rate steady at 5 percent on March 14, where it has been held since a surprise cut in January 2012.
