In the past few years, accessing personal low-interest loans has become easier in Nigeria as more collateral-free loan providers spring up across the country. Leveraging technology, these service providers are able to determine credit worthiness and reach as many people as possible.

One of the oldest of these providers is Credit Direct Limited, a member of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Group.

“We started operations 11 years ago and we operate in 25 states in Nigeria,” says Joseph Osodi, Head, Brand Management and corporate communications at Credit Direct Limited.

The company offers four loan packages; Sharp Sharp — for state and federal civil servants across 25 states, Cash To Go — quick emergency loans, Asset Carry Go loans — to acquire lifestyle and commercial assets and Empower the Corps — aimed at providing a comfortable service year for corpers. They can either get cash loan, loan to start up a new business, buy commercial/lifestyle assets or get a new degree/qualification.
