Difference between GEEP marketmoni and tradermoni
While tradermoni gives petty traders access to loan up to N50,000, you can access up to N100,000 through GEEP MarketMoni.

As earlier stated, you will only pay a one-time five per cent administrative charge which is also spread over 6 months.
You can NEVER get that kind of advantage in other commercial banks. Hardly can any Nigerian bank grant you loan without collateral and “killing interest conditions.”
