How to Repay Covid-19 Loan

COVID-19 loan is not a “non-repayable” loan as many people thought. Although the loan is through the federal government of Nigeria, all beneficiaries must repay the loan amount before the due date. Therefore make sure you don’t default on your loan repayment.

All successful applicants are to repay within 3 years. 

Refusing to pay will only affect your creditworthiness and credit score while the money will still be collected from your BVN-linked accounts.
