COVID-19 Recovery Loan Scheme For Large Businesses

As part of the economic relief package pertaining to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Ministry of Finance has partnered with the Bank of Maldives to support the implementation of the COVID-19 Recovery Scheme.

This scheme allows resorts and businesses registered in the Maldives with over MVR 10 million turnover in 2019, who are financially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, to apply for financing.

For eligible businesses, this is an unsecured facility provided at 6% interest per annum for a 3-year period, including a maximum 6-month grace period in which no interest and principal payment will be made. Funding is contingent on no layoffs of local employees due to COVID-19 outbreak at the time of application.
