The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has concluded plans to roll out the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme GEEP 2.0 in all the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

This follows the final verification of Phase 1 applicants who qualified and were selected to  benefit from small loans ranging from N50,000 to N300,000.

The Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouq said that all beneficiaries of GEEP 2.0 shall receive congratulatory and sensitization text messages in the coming days informing them of their qualification and re-emphasis that the empowerment program is a loan and not a grant.

“All qualified beneficiaries will soon receive their disbursement alerts. We wish to remind all qualified beneficiaries that this is a loan payable without interest. It is not a grant or a government windfall. It is a soft interest-free loan that must be paid back within 9 months”.

The Minister also announced that the Ministry is planning a rollout of the program nationwide, after which an enumeration exercise to capture beneficiaries’ biodata, will take place.
