The Bank of Uganda has introduced credit relief measures to mitigate the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The relief measures are also aimed at promoting financial and operational resilience during these exceptional times.
The measures include repayment holidays for a maximum of 12 months, loan tenor extensions, and any other forms of debt restructuring covered in existing Regulations.
Also as part of the measures, prepayment of arrears as a condition for restructuring a credit facility is suspended for 12 months with effect from April 1, 2020.
