RUFIN Facilitates Access to Finance for 200,000 Rural Dwellers

The Rural Finance Institution Building Programme (RUFIN) said it has facilitated access to finance for over two hundred thousand rural dwellers across 12 states in the country.

The Assistant National Project Coordinator, Angelina Ufaruna, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday,

Mrs Ufaruna explained that the access to credit facilities was made possible for the beneficiaries using the group lending methodology.

She said that the programme had formed over 10,050 groups of 15 to 20 members per group and had built their capacities, linking them to Micro Finance Institutions for financial services.
