Last Monday, the NIRSAL Microfinance Bank (NMFB) demanded that COVID-19 loan issued to people and companies across the country be repaid.
The loan was made possible by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s targeted credit facilities (TCF), which were established to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
“NMFB loan repayment: We have played our part. It is now your turn,” the bank said in a tweet.
The CBN announced the N50 billion TCF in March 2020 to assist households and micro, small, and medium-sized companies (MSMEs) that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Beneficiaries received loans from NIRSAL Microfinance Bank, a CBN-owned business, at a 5% interest rate with a moratorium period that lasts through February 28, 2021.
The interest rate on the facility will revert to 9% on March 1, 2021, when the moratorium expires.
Working capital loans would be for a limit of one year, with no chance for rollover, according to the report. Term loans have a maximum term of three years and must include at least a one-year moratorium.
The highest loan amount available to households is N3 million, while the maximum loan amount available to SMEs is N25 million and is decided by the cash flow and industry/segment size of the beneficiary.
NIRSAL reported that as of December 2021, it has granted out loans of N503 billion to over 881,081 Nigerians and companies to help them cope with the pandemic’s effects.
NIRSAL revealed how the loan payback process works via its official Twitter account.
