National Commission to Issue Electronic Identity Cards to Six Million Nigerian MFI Members to Boost Financial Inclusion

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is collaborating with the Association of Non-bank Micro Finance Institutions of Nigeria (ANMFIN) to register its six million members into the national identity management system and issue them electronic identity card for effective financial inclusion.

It would fast-track the cashless Nigeria project of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as well as the digital economy migration of the federal government.

The ANMFIN members will be issued with national identity numbers (NIN) domiciled in a centralised database that would help government to plan, execute and maintain projects aimed at improving the standard of living of Nigerians.
