Utexrwa, the only textile manufacturing company of the country, has secured a $400,000 credit to produce at least 70,000 malaria bed nets. The company will become the only textile producing company to manufacture the treated bio-nets for local people.

The company is all set to produce first 70,000 nets in two weeks time. The production line has already been installed and technicians are undergoing training.

The project has received technical and financial support from United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Ministry of Health. Another 70,000 nets would be produced in the second phase in the month of May this year.

The key target of the company is to invest $12 million in 3-4 years and employ 2,000 employees. The project will be able to produce more than 12 million nets per year for local and the export markets.

The company has the capability to run the project as it has perfect environment for it and has been generating good progress in its products. This project will make Rwanda the only country to produce highly demanded long lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINS).
