  10. Good day, after filling the organisation section of the survival fund application, it not adding my organisation, keep on telling me no registered organisation even after filling the CAC number

  11. I’ll like to point out a correction on this article on the FG COVID-19 survival fund grant. The article mentions that a prospective applicant for the survival fund, under the MSME payroll support group had to have at least 10 employees to qualify, however, this is not correct as the FG’s actual requirement regarding that is to have no more than 10 employees.
    For reference purposes, I copied the sentence from the survivalfundapplication.com site. (verified)
