Higher Education Loans Board(HELB) is an independent body that deals with the issuing of loans to students in the tertiary and higher learning institutions. The body obtains the funds from the National Treasury.
At the beginning of the 2020/2021 academic year, HELB disbursed some loans to the students who were already in session. Those who were still off session had their HELB loan not disbursed. Up to date many students are still questioning the time when their loans will get disbursed.
Though the actual date is unknown, there are some hopes that disbursement is likely to begin after all subsequent loan appeals are approved. The loan appeal window which was opened last month is expected to end on 30th October this year.
According to the official communication seen on their twitter page, HELB wished everyone a happy cultural day. In their statement, HELB promised to resume their services as from Tuesday, 12th October after the holiday. Meanwhile, as at now all their services remain closed.
