NANTS MICROCREDIT PROGRAMME
The general lack of or inadequate capital available to farmers and other entrepreneurs to engage in production activities especially in the rural areas is one significant problem NANTS have identified among the real sector in Nigeria. For this reason, NANTS therefore introduced the microcredit scheme to support her members and boast their incomes. This success of this scheme attracted Oxfam’s partnership which is presently augmenting the funds provided for farmers. The microcredit intervention of NANTS started in 2008 and has so far covered many communities in Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Nassarawa, Niger, Imo, Kaduna states and the FCT. Over 3,400 farmers have so far benefited from the NANTS microcredit. Below are pictures of some of the microcredit handover and administration activities.
