The governor who announced the decision in a statement on Thursday, said the loan is interest-free and its repayment is spread over 6 months for convenient payback and sustainability.

“Following the completion of a thorough and transparent enumeration process to select potential beneficiaries of KWAGEEP (Owo Isowo), I have approved the disbursement of at least N10,000 micro loans each to 21,623 petty traders across Kwara state,” the governor said.

“The loan is interest-free and its repayment is spread over 6 months for convenient payback and sustainability. It’s one of our strategies to redistribute wealth and tackle extreme poverty among our people.
