- Loan Claim: Provide your bank details accurately. There is a designated space on the portal for this purpose.
- Terms and Conditions: Read and comprehend the terms and conditions of the loan thoroughly. You will find details about the responsible payment director and the repayment procedure.
Loan Repayment Process:
Contrary to some applicants’ expectations, the federal government has emphasized that the loan must be repaid by successful applicants. Please be aware that 5% of the total funds received will be deducted before payment is disbursed to you. It is crucial to ensure timely repayment and avoid defaults.
The loan is structured to be repaid within 3 years. Since your BVN is linked to all your accounts, failure to repay will result in monthly deductions from your account.
