How do I know if my NYIF loan is approved?

Did you apply for the Nigeria youth investment fund loan and you are awaiting their response?

You need not worry as this article will explain all that you need to know if your loan has been approved. Let’s go!

To all the successful candidates of the NYIF loan, a congratulatory message has been sent to you through SMS informing you that your Nigeria youth investment fund loan has been approved.

The message goes thus “Dear applicant, you have been pre-qualified for the NYIF program, kindly click on this link to apply”

All you need to do, is go to your phone inbox to check if this message entered and if it did, “congratulations”.

That means you are among the successful applicants to benefit from NYIF so, the next step is to click on the link that came with the message as directed.

If you receive the message through a no internet connection phone, kindly copy or type the link address exactly the way it is to a browsing phone or PC. Insert your BVN for validation in the box provided.

Some people are tensed up concerning their BVN validation failure with error 524, relax, this is due to the traffic jam on the NYIF portal

as multiple people are trying to log in at the same time which is, in turn, causing the server an extreme load thereby making it fail.

You are advised to wait for an odd hour like midnight when the traffic would have been less before trying yours out.

However, those who didn’t receive any SMS should log in to the NYIF portal through the email address they registered with and check the portal inbox,NYIF

if you found no message there, that means you are not one of the successful applicants but no worry, you can always try.
