The federal government of Nigeria has today, September 21 opened an online portal for Nigerians to register for the N75billion survival fund.
The fund which opens at 10 pm, is for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), and will have educational institutions as the first category of beneficiaries to register.
The minister of state for industry, trade and investment, Mariam Katagum said the programme is aimed at tackling the economic challenges faced by small businesses as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
The Project Delivery Office also said in a statement issued in Abuja. The statement read:
“Nigerians interested in the Payroll Support scheme are to note that the site for registration will be open from 10 pm Monday, September 21, 2020.
