“The reintroduction of this product aims at delivering just that.” He added that: “We urge all caring employers to ease the financial burden of their employees by partnering with NBC in facilitating the granting of group loans.” Mr Legodu also said,
“We understand that with the current economic situation there is much that our customers would like to do, but may be faced with financial constraints, which may hinder them.
