The Government of Belize and the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) signed a loan agreement for US$30 million (BZ$60 million) in 2015 for the Belize Integral Security Program. The Ministry of Defence and Border Security is now making moves to use funds from that loan to improve the Belize Defence Force (BDF).

Operating with a limited budget, the BDF manages hundreds of soldiers and 200 buildings at Price Barracks. The loan will be used for the purchasing of equipment, including motor vehicles, and infrastructure improvements, including the kitchen and living areas that are in dire need of renovation.
