"Donors must start delivering on their promises to Haiti quickly so reconstruction can be accelerated, living standards quickly improved, and social tensions soothed," IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn said on Wednesday.
The new three-year loan from the IMF is intended to boost Haiti's international reserves and help the central bank manage potential swings in the value of the local currency that could arise from large aid flows going into the country.
