The target is 100,000 beneficiaries but as at the time the portal closed, only 65,976 applications were received. 50,032 entries across Nigeria scaled the pre-qualification test and were shortlisted.

“To date, we have successfully disbursed the sum of #56,842,780,000 to 1,079,323 including those registered under CAC”, Katagum confirmed.

“The Federal Government is set to roll out the last component of the Survival Fund known as the Guaranteed Off-take Scheme (GOS)”.

Noting that COVID-19 caused a drop in demand for corporate and household products and commodities, the Guaranteed Off-take Scheme was conceived to assist small businesses.

Katagum explained that the commencement was delayed due to issues from other programmes such as failed payments, balancing value and ensuring equity among states.

For verification and pre-qualification, the minister said the beneficiaries must be Nigerians with valid BVN and have a staff strength of not less than three.
