What’s The NIRSAL Loan?

NIRSAL stands for Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending and it is a financial institution solely owned by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) but that is not our focus in this post (no more distractions, I promise!), although more information about NIRSAL can be gotten from their site which is

After seeing how the plague of Covid 19 disrupted the Nigerian economy on a grand scale, how numerous businesses were shut down and those who remained could hardly pay their staffs, how a lot of Nigerians were unemployed and others had their salaries slashed, the CBN decided to alleviate the scourge of the pandemic by providing credit facilities worth fifty billion naira to support households and MSMEsmicro, small and medium enterprises(finally, they’ll give us our palliative).

Conditions for Eligibility?

As with all government grant or schemes, you must be eligible (this is not a national cake something), and the criteria for eligibility are;

  • Individuals or households whose livelihood has been really affected by the pandemic with evidence (as if the standard of living is not enough). They are entitled to a loan of up to 3 million naira only for 3 years at 9% interest rate per annum. No collateral is required.
  • Businesses whose activities have also been affected by the pandemic with evidence. They are entitled to a loan of up to 25 million naira only for 3 years at 9% interest rate per annum. Collateral is required.
  • Organizations with credit worthy plans to take advantage of opportunities that the pandemic has provided.

  • – for SME

  • Go to
  • Click on the covid-19 support feature located at the top right-hand corner of the page
  • You’ll see an option tagged “Click here to provide other bank account”, Tap on it
  • Select one of the two categories you registered under (that is, SME 2. Household)

At this point, you’ll be directed to the same page of BVN validation that you would have gone to if you had clicked any of the first two initial links (but you said you like trekking).

  1. Input your 11-digit BVN to check if you have received your package and hit the “validate” button

“This BVN detail does not exist” message

Not everybody might necessarily need to check NIRSAL loan with BVN, there are some that might get text messages alerting them of the success of their loan application.

Others were greeted with the “This BVN detail does not exist” message when they tried to check NIRSAL loan with BVN.

If you’re among this category, then you just have to exercise patience and hope your loan is approved. This is because most likely than not, it has been rejected (or it’s pending).

Forgotten your BVN?

What if you’ve forgotten your BVN, or where you have it written is far from your reach? There’s a quick way to get your BVN using USSD.

As regards how to check NIRSAL loan with BVN, you may need to open an account with NIRSAL microfinance bank. This is so you can access the loan as that is the platform  to disburse payments.

Also, there’ll be a 5% charge deduction from the loan before disbursement.

Concluding this post, this is quite an applaudable step by the federal government in collaboration with the CBN. It is more than commendable considering the economic effect of the pandemic on the citizenry.

It is safe to say that this is one of workings of the present administration. One can surely give a positive appraisal whichever way you choose to look at it.

However, one wonders if it would be asking too much of the present administration to give grants and not loans. This is because loans would be difficult to pay back at such a time as this!
