English term or phrase: HARD LOAN
It's a shor article about the apartheid in South Africa ad the economic situation at that time. Hard is actually in the inverted commas so I expect it to be a kind of metaphorical meaning.

Explanation:
another suggestion, as it is difficult to be sure without more context.

It might mean "hard currency loan" which, for example, can be a loan denominated in US Dollars
