"First the GEEP program started in 2016, so this is our third year of operation. Our first loan registration was in May 2016. Since then we have been running the GEEP program nonstop across the country. Also we must note that it is the direct field learnings while implementing...
...#MarketMoni that led to the introduction of the #TraderMoni which started as a mobile-based loan product and kicked off in Sept 2017. The point is that GEEP didn't start in election season. Very far from it. As at Nov 2017... we had disbursed over 300,000 loans" @uzonwagba

What is this #GEEP program really about?

GEEP is a microcredit prog that provides much-needed capital to traders, artisans, farmers, petty traders. It's one of the social intervention progs of the FG and comprises of 3 products: MarketMoni, FarmerMoni, and TraderMoni. @uzonwagba
"GEEP was initiated in 2016 by the FG; with an understanding that there are over 30m Nigerians at the base of the pyramid who are in active commercial activity but never have an opportunity to access credit. In 2017, only 0.04% of bank loans went to this micro segment" @uzonwagba
"These hardworking Nigerians are not “interesting” to the traditional lenders: they've little to no financial track record, they've no collateral, some barely have formal identities. However, they're actively trading and in dire need of capital." - @uzonwagba
