About Qatar Development Bank

The Qatar Development Bank (QDB) was established to develop and empower Qatari entrepreneurs and innovators to contribute to the diversification of the Qatari economy, through successful small and medium-sized enterprises that are able to compete in global markets.

This is primarily achieved through a mixture of:

  • Direct and indirect financing of mandated sectors in general, with a sector-agnostic approach
  • Promoting and supporting exports
  • Providing business support, through a set of initiatives and services associated with real estate development and housing loans to citizens
  • Enhancing technical skills and developing capabilities
  • Providing opportunities for small and medium enterprises domestically and globally
  • Promoting SME ecosystem development
