With the adoption of the new strategic plan (2015 – 2019), the Development Bank of Rwanda (BRD) Ltd has expanded and refocused its mandate on five priority sectors that are envisaged as the key drivers of the Rwandan economy namely Exports, Agriculture, Energy, Affordable Housing and Education.

The Bank has thus selected targeted interventions that both respond to key challenges in these sectors and leverage the Bank’s strengths and positioning as a national development bank. A Special Projects and Infrastructure department was also established to cater for other strategic projects that do not necessarily fall in the above sectors dockets.
