My name is Xavier Effiong and I am the Chief Listening Officer at loangist.com.

We help our audience by providing one place online where they can find all the details they need about grants in Nigeria, loans in Nigeria, Angel investors in Nigeria and the procedure for raising money in the Nigerian capital market.

I hold a B.A (1st Class) from the University of Uyo and a B.Phil (1st Class) from Pontifical Urban University in Rome.

I have more than 19 years of experience in sales and marketing primarily in the investment banking industry and until December 2021, was Northern Regional Manager with Futureview Financial Services Ltd.

While in the investment banking industry, I was often overloaded with requests about the various sources of loans, grants and other financing opportunities available in Nigeria. When I got tired of explaining things to people, I decided to open a blog where I could send people to go and read.
