As a component of the Presidential Palliative Programme, the Federal Government of Nigeria has introduced two initiatives aimed at mitigating the impact of the fuel subsidy removal – the Presidential Conditional Grant Programme and the Presidential Palliative Loan Programme. The announcement came through a recent press release from Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite, CFA, the Honourable Minister for Industry, Trade, and Investment.

Under the Presidential Conditional Grant Programme, the Federal Government will disburse a grant of N50,000.00 (Fifty Thousand Naira) to nano businesses across all 774 local government areas in the country. Collaboration between the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), State and Local Governments, Federal Legislators, Federal Ministers, Banks, and other stakeholders is crucial for the successful implementation of this program.

Eligible nano business beneficiaries are required to furnish proof of their residential/business address in the local government area and provide pertinent personal and bank account information, including the Bank Verification Number (BVN) for identity verification.

In parallel, the Presidential Palliative Loan Programme will allocate N75 billion to Micro, Small, and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) across various sectors and an additional N75 billion specifically to manufacturers. The loan, provided at a single-digit interest rate of 9% per annum, aims to support businesses in navigating the subsidy removal impact.

MSMEs can access loan facilities up to N1 million with a repayment period of three years, while manufacturers can access up to N1 billion for working capital, with a repayment period of one year for working capital or five years for the purchase of machinery and equipment.

Interested MSMEs and manufacturers can submit their loan applications through the designated portal. The funds will be accessed through their respective banks, with applicants required to meet the risk assessment criteria set by their banks.

In line with its commitment to fostering economic development, entrepreneurship, and financial empowerment, the Federal Government anticipates that these initiatives will stimulate entrepreneurship and contribute to job creation.

What is a loan

A loan is a financial arrangement in which a lender provides money or assets to a borrower, who agrees to repay the loan amount along with interest or other agreed-upon terms over a specified period of time. Loans are a common way for individuals, businesses, and governments to access funds for various purposes, such as buying a home, starting or expanding a business, or covering unexpected expenses.

Key elements of a loan include:

  1. Principal: This is the initial amount of money borrowed, which must be repaid.
  2. Interest: Lenders charge interest as the cost of borrowing money. It is typically expressed as a percentage of the principal and is added to the amount the borrower must repay.
  3. Term: The loan term refers to the agreed-upon period over which the borrower is expected to repay the loan. Loans can have short-term or long-term durations.
  4. Repayment Schedule: The borrower and lender agree on a schedule for repaying the loan. This could involve regular monthly or quarterly payments.
  5. Collateral: Some loans are secured by collateral, which is an asset that the borrower pledges to the lender as security for the loan. If the borrower fails to repay the loan, the lender may seize the collateral.
  6. Interest Rate: This is the percentage of the loan amount charged as interest over a specific period.

Loans can be obtained from various sources, including banks, credit unions, online lenders, and financial institutions. The terms and conditions of loans can vary widely based on factors such as the borrower’s creditworthiness, the purpose of the loan, and prevailing market conditions.

It’s important for borrowers to carefully review the terms of a loan agreement, including interest rates, fees, and repayment schedules, before accepting a loan. Understanding these terms helps borrowers make informed decisions and ensures they can manage the financial obligation responsibly.
