Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Rwanda and the Saudi Fund for Development signed two loan agreements for $17 million to develop infrastructure in the central African nation.

About $5 million will go to improving a road to the Nyungwe National Park and another $11.8 million will finance the expansion of the country’s electricity grid, Rwandan Finance Minister John Rwangombwa told reporters in the capital, Kigali, today.
