|MSMEFG Rolls Out Criteria’s For N2.3 Trillion Survival Funds For Msmes by sme360ng: 12:51pm On Aug 02|
The Federal Government has announced plans to roll out a N2.3 trillion stimulus package and survival fund for Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to stay afloat amid the economic challenges imposed by the pandemic.
The survival fund includes payroll support for three months, and guaranteed off-take scheme among others, all under the National Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP).
President Yemi Osinbajo, who also heads the Economic Sustainability Committee, disclosed this at the 2020 edition of the Micro MSMEs Awards which held via video conference
Speaking during the virtual conference, Osinbajo noted that the plan had been approved by the President and the Federal Executive Council to help small businesses pull through these challenging times.
“In that plan which essentially envisages an overall N2.3 trillion stimulus package, we made extensive provision for financial support to MSMEs, ranging from a guaranteed off-take scheme to a survival fund that includes a payroll support programme for qualifying businesses.
“The guaranteed off-take scheme seeks to provide support for MSMEs, manufacturing local products by guaranteeing the purchase from them of qualifying products such as face masks, hand sanitisers, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for medical workers among others” he noted.
These products will then be distributed to Nigerians, institutions, and entities that need them.
The provisions of the recently signed Finance Act also provides for “graduated company income tax rates with zero rates for small companies and a rate reduction for medium-sized companies” he added
To benefit from the scheme, MSMEs would have to go through a rigorous and painstaking verification process which will be based on certain criteria.
MSMEs that have between 10 to 50 staffs are qualified for this fund. The businesses must make their payroll available to the government for verification while applying for the fund. Once qualified, the MSMEs will be eligible to have their staff salary paid directly from the fund for 3 months.

This administration has been supporting MSMEs and providing lots of palliatives before and during this pandemic. The Osinbajo-led ESC also included measures to help MSMEs bounce back to their feet.
