Text Box: 	The franc (ISO 4217:RWF; also RWFR) is the currency of Rwanda. It is subdivided into 100 centimes and is often written RF.
	The franc became the currency of Rwanda in 1916, when Belgium occupied the previously German colony and the Belgian Congo franc replaced the German East African rupie. Rwanda used the currency of Belgian Congo until 1960, when the Rwanda and Burundi franc was introduced. Rwanda began issuing its own francs in 1964.
	A 2000 franc note was introduced in June 2007.
