Following the bunch of requests being passed to the Government over the NYIF loan, the Federal Government has made a huge step by reopening the NYIF Loan Application Portal.
What is the NYIF Loan about?
The NYIF (Nigerian Youth Investment Fund) is a fund set aside to help youths improve their skills and to help them bring out their innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.
This is to help them focus on how they can help society and the country at large with their skills instead of hunting white-collar jobs.
