NYIF Latest Update: Training is a Must in Accessing the NYIF Loan, See How To Get Trained.
Just recently, there has been a social media claim that all Applicants of the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund should expect disbursement of the NYIF Loan without Training.
Similarly, there have been many questions asked by Nigerians about the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund which includes, “Is NYIF ongoing.”
Yes, the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund is ongoing. It has not ended and it is not ending soon.
The Nigeria Youth Investment Fund is a 3 years program that has only received N3 Billion released by the Central Bank of Nigeria out of the N12.5billion approved for the first tranche of the NYIF Loan Scheme, according to a recent report from the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.
The Ministry’s report further disclosed that “so far, 54.6% of the N3 billion amounting to N1,629,220,000 has been disbursed to a total of 5,200 youths in the Loan Scheme.
In the next two years, it is expected that the N75 Billion earmarked for the program would have been disbursed to more than 249,000 Nigerian Youths on a maximum loan cap of N300,000 per beneficiary.
The Loan Cap of N300,000 maximum loan per beneficiary is to enable as many youths as possible to benefit from the Loan Scheme. That is to say, no applicant will be given more than N300,000 in the NYIF.
The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development in a report has clarified that the “Training” of the applicants of the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund is not an option but an essential and compulsory process in accessing the NYIF Loan, which every applicant must undergo regardless of region or caliber.
Currently, training is being prepared for the recently pre-qualified 25,000 applicants. The training will be in batches and will commence soon.
