  23. Good evening sir please how can I apply for this loan I try applying for the loan 2020 so I’m serious for it this year cause a friend of mine got 2million through this platform too.
    Please I will need 2million or 5million to expand my business things are just to hard for me.. Please I’m hopefully waiting for a reply thank you.

  24. I have been applying for a long time but nothing comes out of it.hope I will be considered this time

  25. I’m on the process. I will appreciate any information and guidance to make this good gesture of the government a reality.

  26. Good evening sir I apply COVID-19 loan Tcf before I never see my responding letter to my email please sir 500,000 only I won’t upgrade my besiness thank sir

  27. As much as I know that this scheme is a good one to help masses, I guess its only for those who have CAC registered businesses, asides political motivation on the part of the officials in charge. Another father is the disbursement bottleneck. Here I expected what is meant for the households to be given without much ado from the applicants.
    However, some that are eventually luck to have this would not pay back after the duration. They see it as government free money. So who is deceiving who?
    In conclusion, loans are good for thriving of businesses if the two partners involved in giving and receiving are of corrupt-free minds. This is what is found wanting in the society today to the extent that Dangote, Adenuga, and the likes are running businesses on loans and debts with minimal thoughts of giving back.

  28. What is going on please I have be feeling form since many days now, please I just need a loan of 2million naira, help me with this am a single mother of 4kids

  36. I have applied for the loan but no help for me pls I need a helper cos I want to apply again people of god

  37. Please i haven’t received any information about the loan i applied since last year.

  38. The last time that I applied, I learnt that it has been closed now they are always sending me massages that CBN COVID-19 has reopened yet one can not apply, when you put your BVN number where it is required, they will reply you that your BVN number is invalid even when you put the correct BVN number. If it is real as we are being sent the message, how will one get the right link to apply for the loan or is it a scam or they are using us to play

  39. Please I really need this loan …is almost 3years now and nothing yet. Will be totally grateful if I get this time.

  40. This will be extremely useful to Nigerians who will boost these amazing chance to fill throughout everyday life. It’s a welcome turn of events, I’m intrigued.
