N75bn Survival Fund: Over 1 Million Nigerians Apply In 3 Weeks

More than one million Nigerians have applied to receive the federal government survival grant/ Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) about three weeks after the portal opened.

This was confirmed by President Muhammadu Buhari in a tweet on Sunday night where he wrote:

“Over a million applications have already been received since the 75 billion Naira Nigeria Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) Portal went live on Oct 12, 2020.

This Fund will invest in the innovative ideas, skills and talents of young Nigerians”, Buhari tweeted.

In July, the federal government approved the establishment of the programme to run from 2020 to 2023

The initiative seeks to boost the Nigerian economy through finance for young citizens.

The target is 500,000 youths each year.

Fund approval will range from N250,000 to N50, 000,000 for individual and group applications.

Working capital loans are set at 1 year and term loans set at 3 years with an interest rate of 5 percent.

The fund will be disbursed through micro finance, finance firms and deposit banks.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has revealed the new website for application of the survival fund.

The old website, https://nyif.nmfb.com.ng/, became operational three weeks ago but a new one was unveiled on November 1.
