Are you a Nigerian youth with dreams of thriving in the agricultural sector? Or perhaps you’re an entrepreneur eyeing the vast potential of the agricultural value chain. Look no further than the CBN Agricultural Loan 2024!

In this blog post, we’ll delve into the details of this transformative financial scheme that’s set to empower individuals and businesses in Nigeria’s agricultural landscape.

The CBN Agricultural Loan 2024: A Brief Overview

The roots of the CBN Agricultural Loan 2024 can be traced back to Decree No. 20 of 1977, and it officially commenced operations in April 1978. At its inception, the scheme boasted an original share capital of N100 million and a paid-up capital of N85.6 million, with the Federal Government holding 60% of the shares and the Central Bank of Nigeria, 40%.

Over the years, this financial initiative has evolved to meet the growing demands of Nigeria’s agriculture sector. In March 2001, the capital base of the scheme was augmented to a substantial N3 billion. One of its key functions is to guarantee credit facilities offered to farmers by banks, covering up to 75% of the defaulted amount, net of any realized security.

The Central Bank of Nigeria is entrusted with managing the day-to-day operations of the scheme, with specific guidelines outlining eligible enterprises that can benefit from the guarantees offered.

How the CBN Agricultural Loan 2024 Operates

To facilitate the implementation of the CBN Agricultural Loan 2024, a dedicated account called the ‘CBN Agricultural Loan – Non-Interest Fund’ is established with the apex bank. Non-interest deposit banks, whether full-fledged or window institutions are required to allocate 5% of their Profit After Tax (PAT) annually to contribute to this fund.

These contributions must be transferred to the Central Bank of Nigeria within 10 working days following the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the participating bank.

Eligible Activities Under the Scheme

The CBN Agricultural Loan 2024 covers a broad spectrum of activities within the agricultural value chain. This encompasses production, input supply, storage, processing, logistics, and marketing. Furthermore, it extends its reach to include micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in sectors such as manufacturing, ICT, mining, petrochemicals, the creative industry, and other areas as determined by the CBN from time to time.
