Financial institutions are required to grant a three (3) month moratorium, from April 1 to June 30, 2020, to any debtor in the system who wishes to benefit from it. During this period, only the payment of interest on the receivables will be required.

2. Restructuring and provisioning :
By mutual agreement with their customers, financial institutions can redefine the terms of a loan when the financial situation of these customers deteriorates. For a loan thus restructured, financial institutions are authorized, for a period of one (1) year:

  • Not to make specific provisions for sound loans as of March 31, 2020;
  • To establish specific provisions of 5% on all loans that were sound at September 30, 2019, in accordance with Circular #87 on the classification of loans and the establishment of provisions for bad debts.

3. Other measures :
