Rwanda: Bank of Kigali to Set Up Shop in Kenya

Bank of Kigali (BK) has today been approved by the Kenya Central Bank to set up shop in the region's biggest economy.

Representative offices allow foreign banks to market their products and develop relationships that can be used in future when the bank decides to set up full operations.

BK is one of the largest banks in East Africa's fastest-growing economy in terms of assets.
