More information about this loan

This borrower was directly impacted by the recent fire at the Bujumbura Central Market in Burundi. Many people lost everything. Accordingly, Turame Community Finance is postposing repayment on existing loans for some of its clients affected by the fire, and is offering them additional capital to relaunch their businesses. Because these clients will be rebuilding from the ground up during a period of economic stress, these loans may carry additional risk.
