FirstEdu loan is targeted at private Nursery and Primary and Secondary schools to assist the schools in achieving their desired growth in the medium and long-term. The product provides funding to replace old furniture and equipment, pay staff salaries, purchase brand new or fairly-used buses as well as refurbish dilapidated buildings and classroom blocks. With this product, school owners/proprietors can stay ahead of competition at all times.
The product enables the schools to access facility with no tangible collateral, apart from domiciliation of school fees account with the Bank.
In addition, FirstEdu portal is a modular and robust web-based enterprise portal that enables Tertiary educational institutions manage academic, administrative, professional, logistics and payment challenges. The basis for its robustness is to take the stress of logistics, administrative and payment challenges off the institutions, as they focus on meeting their year-long, medium and long-term objectives.

With over N5 billion loans already disbursed to schools this year alone, we are committed to supporting growth in this key sector of our economy.”
