The second batch of payment of the survival fund is ongoing as the first batch of beneficiaries continues to share their testimonies on social media a few hours ago.

Survival Fund is a grant to support vulnerable micro and small enterprises in meeting their payroll obligations and safeguard jobs within the MSME space from the shock of the Coronavirus pandemic.

A few weeks ago, the Federal Government launched a survival fund website to make it easy for applicants to benefit from financial assistance.

The fund provides financial support to hundreds of individuals, medium and small enterprises MSMEs in meeting payroll objectives.

Beneficiaries include self-employed, artisans, transport workers and technicians who are eligible to access up to N50,000

Testimonies on Twitter

On social media most especially Twitter, some of the beneficiaries who couldn’t hold their joy particularly expressed delight for the payment.

One of the beneficiaries who pleaded anonymity described the development as very timely.

In his words, “as you can see, today is Christmas day and I was already worried about my inability to make adequate preparations owing to lack of money. But with this 30k, I should be able to arrange a few things to out joy on the face of my wife and little daughter.”

He thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for this laudable project while also pleading that the programme be extended beyond three months to help alleviate the burdens of the people.

“The President has done very well with this programme. The programme has been very helpful. I wish it can be extended because, with the second wave of Covid-19 in Nigeria and the imminent plan of another lockdown, many businesses may be in for another round of setbacks. And this will have untold effects on staff who won’t be working during this period.”

The testimonies are endless at the time of this report:
