Structural Adjustment Loan Facility
Loans made by the World Bank and/or IMF to developing countries to finance projects, such as infrastructure, that will promote economic growth in the long term. They are often accompanied by requirements that the borrower make changes to its economic or monetary policies in order to better facilitate growth. For example, a structural adjustment loan may include a stipulation that the borrowing country relax any protectionist subsidies or tariffs.
