OPEC Fund Supports Rwanda WASH Programs


Rwanda Wednesday secured a concessional loan of $20 million (about Rwf18 billion) to boost supply of water as well as scale up sanitation programmes. The loan, from OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID), is expected to contribute to the construction of two water supply systems to cater for the districts of Muhanga, Kamonyi, Ruhango and Nyanza. Dr Claudine Uwera, the Minister of State in charge of Economic Planning, told the media in Kigali that the 20-year loan has an annual interest rate of 1.25 per cent.
