Abu Sa`eed Al-Khudri (a Companion) said

“A man was afflicted during the time of the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and his debts grew. The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Give him charity,’ so the people gave him charity, but it did not reach the amount he needed to settle his debt.” Abu Sa`eed continued, saying: “Then the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to those who lent him: ‘Take what you find, and you can only take that.’”

Meaning, at this moment you can only have that, and it is not permissible for you to ask for more as long as he is in difficult circumstances, rather, the one who has been loaned the money is given some time until his situation eases.
