The Loango weaver (Ploceus subpersonatus) is a species of bird in the Ploceidae family. It is found in Angola, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Gabon. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, dry savanna, and swamps. It is threatened by habitat loss.

It is estimated that there are somewhere between 2,500 and 10,000 of the bird in existence, so it is listed as a vulnerable species.
