Unity Bank, BOI Sign Agreement On SMES Development

Unity bank has entered into a strategic agreement with the Bank of Industry to boost the execution of Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP), one of the social intervention programmes of the Federal Government.

The GEEP initiative provides access to affordable micro credit to Nigerian micro business owners who hitherto were unable to access loans to grow their businesses. Under this partnership, Unity bank will provide account-opening services to qualified beneficiaries of GEEP nationwide. These individual bank accounts will serve as channels for beneficiaries to receive loans disbursed by BoI.

Beneficiaries will also make loan repayments through these bank accounts. Unity bank will also provide BVN registration services for beneficiaries who require such, thereby increasing the financial inclusion in Nigeria. The bank’s participation in the scheme stems from the strategic business objective of supporting micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) to access affordable funding.

Reacting to this development,  Managing Director/Chief Executive  of Unity Bank Plc, Mrs Tomi Somefun, stated that the success of the partnership with BoI is a testament to the fact that despite the difficulties of accessing credits by this segment of the market, the good knowledge and understanding of different players in the market segments and ability to harness inherent opportunities for their benefits have continued to differentiate the bank in line with its strategic business focus on agriculture, retail/SME and rural economy.
