AGSMEIS Loan: How to Confirm, Change or Contact your EDI Training Centers

Many applicants of the Agri-Business/Small and Medium Enterprise Investment Scheme (AGSMEIS) Loan Scheme have one or multiple times recieved text messages inviting them for EDI Trainings involving payment of N10,000 Training Fee, of which some of these text messages have been confirmed to be Fraudulent. 

Let me firstly start by clearing some misconceptions about the AGSMEIS EDI Training as follows:

1. It is a known fact to all applicants that for one to apply for the AGSMEIS Loan, one must firstly create a Profile by Registrating through the application portal https://nirsalmfb.caderp.com/Account/Register. Registering through this portal does not mean one has applied for the AGSMEIS Loan. 

2. After the Registration, one must be trained by a CBN Approved Entrepreneurship Development Institute  (EDI) which must be chosen by the applicant during Registration or later as I would show you in this publication. The Training Fee is N10,000. Why? Because they are CBN Approved but are independent units doing their own businesses. Some EDI offer more Trainings than just for the purpose of the AGSMEIS Loan Scheme. CBN however approved the N10,000 Training Fee for all States EDIs and no extortion is allowed.

3. The EDI can assist you in developing a Business Plan that suits your Business of choice at a service fee usually N5,000 for the purpose of the AGSMEIS Loan Scheme.

4. Also, the EDI will help you apply for the Loan by uploading your Business Plan, monitoring and 'tracking' your loan application. Many applicants do not actually know this and many have been raising alarm over approval. This service also comes at a fee of usually N10,000, depending on the EDI.

How to Confirm your EDI Training Invitation Text messages or Email
