Last year, it was all over that The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) approved
the disbursement of about N75billion as loan to
farmers in the 36 states and the Federal Capital
Territory (FCT) under the Nigerian Incentive-
Based Risk Sharing in Agricultural Lending
(NIRSAL).

That was all we heard. The requirement, process and even testimonies of people that successfully acquired the loan is not known.

I don’t think it’s still functioning because so far, no one that I have seen or known or heard of has come out to say he or she got the loan.

I will advice you to get loan from elsewhere although with interest. The payment of the interest should not be a problem since you are going to make profits from your farm. And you are confident in what you are doing.
