The mining sector is a strategic and vital market for the Democratic Republic of Congo

Indeed, the country has unrivalled mineral resources worldwide: it is Africa's leading producer of copper and the world's leading producer of cobalt.

As the leading development partner for mining actors in DRC, Rawbank provides genuine support for the entire value chain in this sector, ensuring that it has a substantial credit capacity to grant medium- and short-term financing to mining operators.

In an interview with CNBC Africa journalist Kenneth Igbomor, Rawbank Managing Director Mustafa Rawji discussed the role of banks in opening up opportunities for the mining sector in Africa.
