Funding Nigeria SMEs’ initiative – Unity Bank Sensitizes SMEs in three States
Unity Bank Plc, has embarked on a one-day public enlightenment workshop across three states to create the necessary awareness on how Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)can access funds, loans and grants available in the Funding Nigeria SMEs’ initiative.
It would be recalled that the Bankers’ Committee of the Central Bank of Nigeria introduced a new initiative to enable Small and Medium-scale Enterprises to access loans, funds and grants to grow their businesses.
According to a statement from the apex bank, the Funding Nigeria Small and Medium-scale Enterprises initiative is in line with the Federal Government’s commitment to growing SMEs.
Bonaventure Okhaimo, the General Manager, Products and Channels Directorate, in a chat with DAILY INDEPENDENT, said: “The initiative, which is part of the government’s economic diversification effort towards increased SMEs’ easy access to intervention funds, aims at growing small and medium-scale businesses for effective contribution to the Nigerian economy.”
