The Bank of the Republic of Haiti (French: Banque de la République d'Haïti, (BRH) is the central bank of Haiti. The Bank is active in promoting financial inclusion policy and is a member of the Alliance for Financial Inclusion.
The Bank of the Republic of Haiti was founded after the independence of Haiti from France. The oldest reference to a bank in Haiti can be attributed to a short correspondence exchanged during September 1825 between a foreign tradesman, Nicholas Kane, the Secretary of State Balthazar Inginac about a proposal made by George Clark in the name of a German group, Hermann Hendrick and Co., to establish a bank in Haiti. However, the proposal was never accepted, and Hermann Hendrick and Co. was never established.
In October 1910, a concession was granted to a consortium of French, German and American businessmen for the creation of a new bank: the National Bank of the Republic of Haiti (French: Banque Nationale de la République d'Haïti (BNRH)). In 1979, BNRH was split into two financial institutions: the National Bank of Credit (French: Banque Nationale de Crédit (BNC)), a commercial bank, and BRH.
