Take out of RDB in this event
1. A lot of the business community in the GISHAMVU Sector do not have the business registration certificate thus it becomes difficult to venture in public tender processes giving a room the outsiders of the GISHAMVU Sector to grab the opportunity
2. Having multiple securities in different places brings a burden when accessing fully loans requirements due to the mortgage registration procedures thus requesting RDB to reconsider an arrangement that can be made to pay once the mortgage fees of 20,000 as stipulated by the law and void the rest to back the latter.
1. RPPD Secretariat will liaise with champions in HUYE District through BDC champion to facilitate registration of the GISHAMVU Sector business community by 15th November 2014
2. Daniel will discuss with Registrar General’s Office to outline the possibility entailed on the matter and communicate back to the HUYE District champions.
