However, some people were contemplating then and if you one of them,  the opportunity is still existing as at the time of writing this post. It’s pretty advisable to take advantage of that now.

If your application was successful, you’ll get disbursement in the coming weeks. The CBN had introduced the N50bn Targeted Credit Facility as a stimulus package to support households and Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.


The N50bn intervention is being financed from the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Fund.

In terms of limit, the loan amount would be determined based on the activity, cash flow, and industry size of the beneficiary, subject to a maximum of N25m for SMEs.
