The institution, which is well-aligned with the SDGs since 2018, focuses on Agriculture and agro-processing development, Exports and Manufacturing, Energy, including renewable and clean energy, Housing, Infrastructure and Education.
Last April, BRD received a B + rating (stable outlook) from Fitch Ratings, one of the three largest credit rating agencies in the world. The announcement highlights CEO Kampeta Sayingoza’s management and the position of the institution in relation towards the best banking standards and practices.
CEO Kampeta Sayingoza will be one of the speakers at the Brazil Africa Forum 2020 and will contribute to dialogues to strengthen ties between Brazil and the African continent, especially Rwanda, which has 94% of its workers employed in the private sector.
CEO Kampeta Sayinzoga has 16 years of professional experience as an international development practitioner in both public and private institutions within Rwanda and the East African Region.
