The Government Enterprise and Empowerment Program (GEEP) grants interest-free loans of between N10,000 to N300,000 in a graduating scale of N10,000; N20,000; N50,000; N100,000; and N300,000. Traders either start at N10,000 (TraderMoni), or N50,000 (MarketMoni), or N300,000 (FarmerMoni) depending on the scale of their current trade, and preparedness to meet the criteria at each level. When beneficiaries take a loan and pay back, they automatically qualify for the next higher amount. One of the primary goals of GEEP is to increase financial inclusion and support for citizens at the lowest base of the economic pyramid.
