It’s history dates back to 1983 when it started as a credit trust of the Uganda National Lay Apostolate. Normal operations started in 1985 for two reasons; serving the rural poor and making a meaningful contribution to the socio-economic development of Uganda.
In 1993, it transitioned to Centenary Rural Development Bank Limited and it was licensed as a full-service commercial bank.
