IMF agrees $262 million loan for Burundi

The International Monetary Fund said it has agreed to a $261.7 million loan for Burundi, its first in eight years, in a bid to bolster economic recovery and reforms.

The “staff-level agreement” for a 40-month credit facility for the poverty-stricken central African nation followed a visit by an IMF team to Burundi’s economic capital Bujumbura in February.

It aims to “support a push to restore external sustainability, strengthen debt sustainability while supporting economic recovery from shocks and creating fiscal space for accelerated and inclusive growth”, the IMF said in a statement late Monday.

The facility, the first since 2015, still requires the approval of IMF management, it added.

Burundi has been suffering economic malaise since a deadly political crisis in 2015, with a lack of foreign exchange and shortages of basic goods.
