At MCB Bonaire, we are committed to work with all clients to make sure that they find solutions that will help address financial hardships caused by COVID-19. We have therefore extended the financial relief options for our personal and commercial clients.
For Personal Clients: To be ELIGIBLE, clients MUST OPT-IN and must complete the form on our website. The request will be evaluated as per the stipulated Lending Guidelines of the Bank and clients will be duly informed of the decision latest end of June 2020
For Commercial Clients: They are AUTOMATICALLY enrolled in the Loan moratorium. Should they wish to OPT-OUT they will need to send an e-mail to: [email protected].
MCBB will automatically implement the 3-month moratorium extension ONLY on all Commercial loans, Commercial mortgages and Corporate credit cards for which the payments are up-to-date or which are less than 90 days in arrears as per March 2020 (not including the moratorium of March, April and May 2020).
Personal clients who wish to request the moratorium extension MUST Opt-IN by filling out the form on our website. The request will be evaluated as per the stipulated lending guidelines of the Bank and the clients will be duly informed of the decision.
The Bank will, as per its regular application process and responsible lending process, review clients’ financial situation at the moment of the request with an increased focus on clients that have been directly affected by the Covid19 situation and are in urgent need of financial relief, such as loss of employment, substantial cut in salaries and/or any other financial issues arising from this difficult situation. When the application has been reviewed and assessed, the clients will be contacted to inform if their request was approved. If the request is denied, clients will be invited for an appointment into the Bank to discuss further possibilities on how the Bank can assist.
Note: The moratorium for the months of March, April and May 2020 was applied automatically for Personal as well as Commercial clients. Clients who did not accept the moratorium, opted out and continued their loan payments.
No, your account will not be debited for the loan payments if you qualified for the moratorium extension.

No, this is not possible.
Yes, these monthly payments have been deferred but you will still need to pay 3 monthly installments which go into effect at the maturity date of your loan. This means that you will continue to pay the same loan instalment for 3 additional months after the loan maturity date has been reached to pay back the months June, July and August 2020. If you accepted the moratorium for March, April and May 2020, you will have to pay 6 additional months after the loan maturity date.
A new loan account was opened in your name in order to cover the deferred monthly payments of March, April and May 2020, and if you qualified for the moratorium extension, the monthly payments of June, July and August 2020 will also be deferred to the new loan. The amount on this new loan account will need to be repaid at the end of the maturity date of the original loan in 3 monthly installments equal to the original loan monthly payment or in 6 monthly instalments if you qualified for the extension on the moratorium.
Example: You are paying USD 1,000.- a month, the payments of March, April and May 2020 have been deferred. A new loan account is opened for USD 3,000.- which is equal to 3 monthly payments. If you are supposed to finish paying the loan by December 2021 now you will have 3 additional payments for January 2022, February 2022 and March 2022 each in the amount of USD 1,000.- to clear the deferred amount of USD 3,000.- If you qualified for the extension of the moratorium (June, July and August 2020) you will have to pay April, May and June 2022 to pay off the loan.
No, MCBB will not be charging any additional interest on the deferred loan payments.
You will notice a new loan account number (starting with 9) on your Online Banking Accounts List referring to the 0% COVID-19 Moratorium. This is the loan extension granted to you. The amount indicated is the deferred accumulated amount for the months of March, April and May 2020 which is due by you after the end date of your original loan, spread over 3 equal monthly installments. If you were granted the moratorium extension, same applies, but over a spread of 6 monthly instalments.
This payment will be seen as a payment to the new loan account. Therefore if you wish to pay back the 3 month payments then this will have to be applied to the new loan account.
Your monthly repayment will remain the same until the end of the term. Once your loan matures you will need to repay the 3 monthly payments which were deferred with 3 monthly installments equal to those of the loan. If you qualified for the extension of the moratorium your monthly payments with be deferred with 6 months.
With the acceptance of the moratorium of March, April and May 2020 your loan repayment schedule will resume in June 2020 and your loan period will be extended with 3 months, maintaining same monthly repayment amount. If you qualified for the moratorium extension, your loan period will be extended with another 3 months, maintaining same monthly repayment amount. Please note that this implies that the maturity date of your loan is extended with 3 or 6 months depending if you qualified for the moratorium extension and that you will be required to repay 3 or 6 months after the maturity of the date of your original loan. This means your repayment of the monthly installments has been extended with 3 months due to the moratorium or 6 months if you qualified for the moratorium extension.
No, your repayment amount will remain the same. Yes, the monthly payment will be automatically deducted for 3 or 6 consecutive months.
Yes, we have extended the financial relief with 3 extra months (June, July and August 2020). Commercial clients will be extended automatically and have the option to opt-out to continue with their payments.
