Banks

Rwanda Financial Service has six (6) main commercial banks regulated by an independent Central Bank known as BNR (Banque Nationale du Rwanda). However, with Rwanda now part of the East African Community, some major banks in the region have joined the market and are operating in Rwanda. The main foreign bank with major activities in Rwanda is KCB, Kenya Commercial Bank.

Banking service operations in Rwanda date back in early 1960, originating from the oldest banks of BCR and Bank of Kigali respectively. More recently, most commercial banks in Rwanda have centred their operations on trade finance as opposed to long-term debt financing. This change in banking services in Rwanda has triggered off to lack of productive investment activity, though there is urgent need to focus attention on the reform and strengthening of the financial sector in this fast developping nation. This appeals for introduction of more banks, financial products and capital market.

Rwanda banking sector has therefore several opportunities for investment into mortgage banks to enhance access to property, agricultural banks to offer much needed agricultural credit to farmers and introduction of new financial products including leasing and venture capital to minimize hardships of opening business as well as its continued successful operations. The following is a list of major commercial banks operating in Rwanda.
