According to PUNCH, this was revealed on Wednesday, in Abuja by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouq, in a statement made available by her Special Assistant on Media, Nneka Anibeze.

PUNCH reports that Umar-Farouq said the plan was made following the final verification of Phase 1 applicants, who qualified and have been selected to benefit from small loans ranging from N50,000 to N300,000.

Umar-Farouq noted that all the beneficiaries of GEEP 2.0 would receive congratulatory and sensitisation text messages in the coming days informing them of their qualification.

As reported by PUNCH, Umar-Farouq further stated, “The GEEP 2.0 is a loan scheme designed by the Federal Government to provide financial inclusion and give credit access to the poor and vulnerable individuals including persons with disabilities.

“It also covers persons at the bottom of the economic pyramid, who are engaged in small-scale commercial activities under its three flagship schemes.

“These three flagship schemes are MarketMoni, TraderMoni and FarmerMoni.

“Tradermoni targets uplifting under-privileged and marginalised youths aged between 18 and 40 years in Nigeria by providing them with loans of N50,000.

The minister said that these farmers were provided with loans of N300,000 for farm inputs, adding that the scheme had 12 months including three months moratorium and nine months repayment period.Jamb Result

“All qualified beneficiaries will soon receive their disbursement alerts. We wish to remind all qualified beneficiaries that this is a loan payable without interest.

“It is not a grant or a government windfall. It is a soft interest-free loan that must be paid back within nine months.’’
