Abstract: Over the last five years, the government of Rwanda (GoR) has developed a number of successful policies and regulations to address key challenges facing the poultry subsector. As outlined in its poultry subsector strategy for 2012-17, the government aims to establish poultry as the flagship of Rwanda’s livestock industry, with a particular focus on improving production and marketing. The financial and economic analysis of poultry farming activities as well as feed production has revealed that investments into poultry value chain are financially and economically feasible. Financial rate of return ranges from 19 to 53 percent, while economic rate of returns ranges from 30 to 73 percent.
