DBE is well known for providing loans for different priority sectors of the government’s development plan, most recently, the bank’s paid up capital was approved for anexpansion of 4.5 billion birr – from three to 7.5 billion.
“It is difficult to inject the adequate amount of capital into the bank from the public treasury at once, thus it is necessary to issue a bond,” the document attached with the draft proclamation explained.
Currently over 1.9 billion birr of capital secured from different sources has already transferred to the bank. However, the document does not specify if the remainder of the capital will be collected from local or international sources.

Specials bonds were most recently issued to raise the paid up capital of another state owned financial firm, Commercial Bank of Ethiopia. Bonds worth 2.5 billion birr were issued to enable the bank’s engagement in various forms of credit provision.
