Financial assistance goes to sizeable projects through the IDC. The viability of projects is essential and commercial conditions apply to interest rates and security. The IDC has a wide range of other financing schemes for would-be investors. The most common form of finance is a medium to long-term low-interest loan.
There are other organisations that also do project funding depending on the type and magnitude of funding required. These organisations are the likes of National Empowerment Fund (NEF), National Development Agency(NDA) and National Youth Development Agency(NYDA). From the private sector there is an abundance of sources of project funding, for example from the commercial banks, the merchant banks.
