  3. Good morning, I was sent a message that I have been prequalified for loan, I was asked to validate my bvn which I did, after which I set up a password and submitted. I was told to go verify my email that a link has been sent to me, this is 2 days now I’ve not received the link.

  4. Pls sir I have issues when trying to get to next page after putting business details in my portal and it’s showing error.what can I do

  6. Pls!,d issue am having is that I lost my line I use register so hope it won’t curse an issue right pls put me true Mr admin

    • We strongly advise that you verify the information at the NYIF official site. If we get the right information we’ll post it on this page

    • The link is genuine meanwhile, the site seems overloaded. The website goes on and down. What I could deduce is that the website bandwidth has been stretched to its maximum.

      1. I have been able to do mine
      2. I didn’t receive any email. I guess that config has been deactivated.

      My take:
      1. try accessing the link in the dead of the night with good network. .
      2. Use a better browser like Firefox.
      3. No email is being sent. For now, don’t expect one.
      4. When you are done, try accessing the website again. You should be directed to a landing page. There you will see Apply for a lone, Login, Register.
      5. Click login or Apply for a lone
      6. input your email and password.
      7. You should then be directed to the D-page. This is where you will have the opportunity to fill in your business details and bla bla bla

      With this, you should be fine. I guess 😊

  8. Good day!
    I have submitted while I made a mistake in my email I write .com at front of my email during register I just write email name without this .com,what is the solution?

      • I’m among the people that have received the text message to complete my registration by clicking on a Link, however, I noticed there was a mistake with the email address I provided during the first registration, and mistake was that there was an additional o in the spelling of yahoo I.e instead of yahoo, I wrote yahooo, could this be why I have not been able to receive their mail?

    • I got an SMS in my phone inviting me for the online training but later the message disappeared. Later on I got another sms Nmfb telling me am pre-qualified and I should follow a link which I did and verified my bvn. I am done with the registration which includes submitting my indigene form , my business type and so on. Please is it possible for me to get an SMS for the training?
