Businesses and households impacted by COVID-19 can now apply for loans under the Central Bank of Nigeria's (CBN) N50 billion Targeted Credit Facility.

The stimulus package, it said, was designed to help households and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with beneficiaries having access to up to N25 million.

The N50 billion Targeted Credit Facility (TCF) is now open for businesses and households impacted by COVID-19, and interested Nigerians can apply by clicking the button below.

The CBN went on to say that the COVID-19 pandemic had resulted in unprecedented disruptions to global supply chains, a dramatic drop in global crude oil prices, and instability in global stock and financial markets, among other things.

It claimed that as a result of the drop in global demand, decreased consumer trust, and production slowdown, these outcomes had had severe implications on households' livelihoods and business activities.
