CBN has made some guidelines to Non-Interest Financial Institutions under its Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Fund (MSMEDF) and Agri-Business, Small and Medium Enterprise Investment Scheme (AGSMEIS)
How the AGSMEIS works
Each non-interest Deposit Bank was also to transfer its contribution to the CBN not later than 10 working days after the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the participating bank.

Others included MSMEs in the real sector including manufacturing, ICT, mining, petrochemicals and the creative industry as well as other activities as the CBN may determine from time to time.
