CBN trains entrepreneurs in Nsukka
Aspiring entrepreneurs from Nsukka and its environment, who benefited from the capacity building programme of the South East Entrepreneurship Development Centre (SEEDC), have applauded the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Sterling Bank Plc for the gesture.
Under the Youth Innovative Entrepreneurship Development Programme (YIEDP) by CBN, it was initiated to harness the entrepreneurial spirit of Nigeria’s teeming youth by providing timely and affordable loans to implement their business ideas.
It is open to youths aged 18 to 35, who are serving youth corps members, while graduates with more than five years after the mandatory national service are not eligible to participate.
Meanwhile, 162 graduates from the Nsukka axis completed training at the SEEDC, with 90 qualifying to access loans in sectors like agriculture, food processing and preservation, arts and craft, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), energy, education and photography.
