IMF Lends Burundi $6.9m

The International Monetary Fund said that it would lend Burundi $6.9m to shore up the aid-dependent central African nation, months before a presidential election in June, VoA reported. The IMF also said it would lend Burundi $13.9 million in 2016 to “help strengthen the management of public finances and consolidate the country’s economic reform program.” The funds are part of IMF’s Extended Credit Facility regime, a financial support program for low-income countries that carries a zero interest rate. Burundi has received about $41.6 million through the program over the last three years.
