Dr. Dikko Umaru Radda, said the two agencies are committed to the successful implementation of the programme in the interest of Nigeria’s MSEs.
He also stated that the disbursing entity, under the programme, shall be the Bank of Agriculture Ltd (BOA).
“Target beneficiaries for this programme shall be labour-intensive micro or small enterprises (MSEs), operating in the real sector.
These shall ideally have innovative value-added products that are establishing footprint in the Nigerian market, and require additional funds to increase output,” the Director General said.
He therefore called for applications from all suitably-qualified MSEs located in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kaduna and Oyo states to apply for the programme.
