Our History

Following the acquisition of Rwanda’s Unguka Bank Limited by LOLC Mauritius Holdings, a subsidiary of LOLC Holdings PLC, our institution has undergone a transformative change. Not only have we transitioned to a microfinance legal framework, but we have also rebranded as LOLC Unguka Finance.

Formerly known as Unguka Bank Limited, we began our journey in 2005 as a microfinance institution before evolving into a commercial bank. Now, under the umbrella of LOLC Holdings PLC, a multinational financial conglomerate with a presence in 25 countries across Africa and Asia, we are poised for even greater impact.

As LOLC Unguka Finance, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing inclusive financial services to our clients. With a focus on empowering individuals and businesses to achieve their financial goals, we are dedicated to driving positive change in Rwanda and beyond.

Our diversified operations span across various sectors, including manufacturing and trading, leisure, agriculture and plantations, technology, research and innovation, construction, and strategic investments. As part of the LOLC Group, we are proud to contribute to the socioeconomic development of the communities we serve.

While our name and legal framework may have changed, our core values of integrity, innovation, and customer-centricity remain unchanged. Join us at LOLC Unguka Finance as we continue to pave the way for financial inclusion and prosperity in Rwanda and beyond
