How GEEP Works
GEEP Agents are deployed to market clusters across Nigeria with mobile devices.
Potential beneficiaries are registered at the point of their trade with several data points collected including face ID & GPS location.
These data points are submitted to a central database where they will undergo verification.
Every successful data submission is categorized into batches of 10-20.
Our fully manned call centre goes through the process of calling a randomized batch of beneficiaries to verify the submitted information.
Once verified, potential beneficiaries are ready for disbursement into their mobile wallets.
Verified beneficiaries receive a text message on their phone, asking them to respond to a loan offer.
Once they accept, their mobile wallet is funded with the loan amount.
The beneficiaries can choose to transfer the money to their bank account or receive cash via an agent in their market.
Every beneficiary has a 2 weeks moratorium period before they begin to repay their loan. Loan repayments range from a minimum of 3 months to a maximum of 6 months.
Beneficiaries can repay at any bank or by using voucher cards. Once a beneficiary fully repays, they automatically qualify for a higher loan amount
