* Others

The details below are relevant for all eligible youth:

Eligible youth can apply for the loan through this portal http://www.yiedp-hbng.com/ using his/her NYSC State Code. Applications can be made as an Individual or as a group (of 3-5 applicants with similar business interest). A single applicant can access up to a facility limit N3m while group project jointly owned by 3-5 qualified beneficiaries can access up to a facility limit of N10m.
