    What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Burundian franc?

    The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Burundian franc can be affected by many different factors like economic and political events in both Burundi, the United States, and around the world.

    • Interest rates. Higher interest rates in either country will most likely lead to higher exchange rates for the same country. Similarly, lower interest rates will lead to a lower exchange rate because fewer people will demand Burundian franc to invest in the country, as the return on investment there is less attractive for foreign investors.
    • Improving economy in Burundi. In most cases, this’ll contribute to a higher exchange rate between the Burundian franc and the US dollar. However, if uncertainty about the country’s development becomes widespread, foreign investors will most likely pull money out of Burundi, lowering the value of the franc as a result.
