TMRC is a specialized private sector financial Institution that provides long-term


funding to financial institutions for the purposes of mortgage lending. It has the
objective of supporting financial institutions to do mortgage lending by
refinancing Primary Mortgage Lenders' (PMLs') mortgage portfolios. This type of
lending is also known as wholesale or secondary market lending. TMRC is neither
taking deposits nor lending directly to individuals. It refinances mortgage loan
portfolios rather than individuals mortgage loans and caters to banks rather than
individual borrowers. TMRC is raising the funds to support its operations of
mortgage refinancing. “It was envisioned from its inception that TMRC will source
funds from the capital markets through bond issuance among other sources” said
Mgaya. “It was just a matter of time and now is the right time given the declining
interest rates environment” added Mgaya.
