Financial Inclusion


Rwandan considers financial inclusion as an integral enabler for achieving its development and poverty reduction objectives. Rwanda targets achieving 80 percent financial inclusion by 2017 and 90 percent by 2020, as stated in Vision 2020. Progress toward reaching this target to date has been excellent so far.  The national bank of Rwanda is a key player in Rwanda’s financial inclusion agenda. The bank implements the national financial inclusion strategy, through its regular engagements with financial sector players. To evaluate financial inclusion progress, the BNR leads financial inclusion demand surveys, collects financial inclusion data from financial institutions and periodically produces financial inclusion reports.
