How to repay your COVID-19 NIRSAL loan: Last week, NIRSAL Microfinance Bank (NMFB) called for the repayment of COVID-19 loans given to households and businesses across the country.

The loan was part of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s targeted credit facilities (TCF) to cushion the effect of COVID-19.

“NMFB loan repayment: We have played our part. It is now your turn,” the bank said in a tweet.

Loans were disbursed to beneficiaries by NIRSAL, an entity owned by CBN, at an interest rate of five percent with a moratorium period that lasts till February 28, 2021.

At the expiration of the moratorium, the interest rate of the facility reverts to nine percent from March 1, 2021.

As of December 2021, NIRSAL said it had given out loans worth N503 billion to over 881,081 Nigerians and businesses to cushion the effects of the pandemic.
