How to apply for N50 billion CBN Covid-19 fund for small businesses – The novel coronavirus outbreak has a severe impact on the livelihood of households and business activities resulting to drop in global demand for goods and services, declined consumer confidence and slowdown in production among others – Apply here!

The Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning have announced some monetary and fiscal measures to help mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the economy, Nigerian businesses and households.

The CBN on its own, through various circulars and pronouncements, has announced CBN Covid-19 fund that will impact on different sectors like the health sector, Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), manufacturers, households and so on.

The apex bank introduced an N50 billion CBN Covid-19 fund Targeted Credit Facility (TCF) as a stimulus package to support households and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that are affected by the coronavirus pandemic

Why it matters: The TCF was designed to cushion the adverse effects of COVID-19 on households and MSMEs; support households and MSMEs whose economic activities have been significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to stimulate credit to MSMEs to expand their productive capacity through equipment upgrade and research and development.

Who is TCF meant for?: In the operational guideline for the facility, the CBN listed participants who are eligible to apply for credit from this facility. They are Households with verifiable evidence of livelihood adversely impacted by the coronavirus outbreak; existing enterprises with verifiable evidence of business activities adversely affected as a result of the coronavirus pandemic (as part of its consistent review, CBN has declared that eligible applicant does not need to have a business plan), and firms in agricultural value chain activities.

Others are hospitality industry (accommodation and food services), Airline service providers, Health (pharmaceuticals and medical supplies), Manufacturing/value addition, Trading and other income-generating activities as may be prescribed by the CBN.

Source of fund: The scheme shall be funded from the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Fund (MSMEDF) and the eligible participating financial institution for the scheme is NIRSAL Microfinance Bank (NMFB).

How to access the fund: There are two modalities here to consider. According to the CBN’s circular issued on March 23, 2020, either Households/MSMEs or Corporate entity.

For Households/MSMEs,

  • The first step is for an eligible household to submit an application to NIRSAL MFB, which must, among others, contain BVN number, business registration (where applicable) and business plan with clear evidence of the opportunity or adverse impact as a result of COVID-19 pandemic
  • NMFB shall appraise and conduct due diligence applications
  • Upon satisfactory appraisal of application, NMFB shall forward the applications to the CBN for final approval,
  • Then, CBN reviews applications and gives final approval for disbursement to NMFB.

For corporate entities,

  • Like their MSMEs counterparts, applications are submitted to NMFB with clear evidence of the opportunity or adverse impact as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Also, NMFB shall appraise and conduct due diligence applications,
  • After satisfactory appraisal of application, NMFB shall forward the applications to the CBN for final approval.
  • CBN reviews applications and gives final approval for disbursement to NMFB.

Though, applicants may suffer certain setbacks due to communication gaps on the part of NMFB. For instance, one of the potential applicants, Kolade Emmanuel took to Twitter to make an enquiry about the loan has not received feedback from the bank after one month. When Nairametrics contacted him, he said, “I have not heard from the bank in about one month after I have followed all necessary processes.”

Dear NMFB AGSMEIS Customer, kindly note that the cost for EDI training is N10,000, while the Mini Business Plan is N5,000 only. It has come to our notice that some centers request additional charges, kindly disregard & report them via whistleblower@nmfb.com.ng or call 094621730.

Loan Tenor: The guideline states that the loan for working capital shall be for a maximum of one year, with no option for rollover. As for the term loan, a maximum tenor of not more than 3 years with, at least, one-year moratorium.
