Heritage Bank Packages N200m Facility For Graduate Entrepreneurs 

As part of its commitment towards reaching out and funding Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs), Heritage Bank Limited has packaged a N200 million loan facility for young graduates willing to advance their dreams in small scale businesses.
The facility, according to the bank is a revolving soft loan which comes with a financial and management advisory to support National Youth Corps members who upon passing out demonstrate serious intentions of starting up small scale businesses. 
Speaking during the passing out parade of the Corps members at the Orientation Camp in Ipaja Lagos, Executive Director of Heritage Bank Mr. Ola Olabinjo, who represented the Managing Director of the bank, congratulated the young graduands for a successful service year and commended the NYSC for its commitment to youth development. 
“The country is facing huge challenges and you hold the key to solutions. As you venture out into the workforce or enterprise, you owe yourself and future generations to be the catalyst for change.” 
He stated further that the strategic thrust of Heritage Bank is hinged on the future, which translates into creating, preserving and transferring wealth across generations. This, he explained, informed the setting up of a department for the youth by the bank.
Olabinjo emphasised that the idea of the loan became necessary because small businesses form the engine of the economy. “With a business, you can bequeath a legacy that will outlive you.” he added. 
Recently, the bank re-affirmed its business principle to empower more Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria. Managing Director, Heritage Bank, Mr. Ifie Sekibo, stated that part of the bank’s commitment to empower SMEs was the launch of an SME Clinic that will be geared towards helping small businesses address challenges associated with setting up businesses as well as mitigating the effects of certain business decisions by such entrepreneurs.
