Meanwhile, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has waived the requirement for the provision of guarantors by households and SMEs applying for its N50 billion COVID-19 targeted credit facility. Legit.ng reports that the apex bank made this revelation on its official Twitter account.

The Nation reports that a source at the CBN confirmed that the reason for waiving the guarantor requirement was to reduce the stress on applicants trying to access the loan.

According to the source: “The CBN wants to minimise the stress on applicants but that does not mean that they will not pay back the loan. They will.”

Already, thousands of Nigerians have applied for the loan while the implementing agency the NIRSAL Microfinance Bank (NMFB) has been processing the applications for disbursement.
