  • evans misore said:

    am self sponsored student you awarded me loan when is going to be effected in the school account?

  • Mwalimumkuu said:

    If the state of your written English displayed here is a sample of the caliber of university and college students we have in our ‘institutions of higher learning’,its no wonder that many of your applications are not even being considered…Perhaps it may be of more benefit for most of the posters here to apply for loans to go back to primary school and learn some proper English!!

  • mwalimu mkuu mwingine said:

    I second you Mwalimu Mkuu. The kind of sentence construction that is shown here is shocking…and they want loans to go for higher learning? I just wish them all the best and probably the communications skills one and two will help them.

    FYI i also need a loan bana.

  • Kamau John said:

  • Cleophas said:

    Is it in order for the HELB to delay the loan for the regular students when at the back of their minds most of this students are bright but have-nots.

  • Songok philip said:

    I hope that the loan is provided egual,to all students who applied for,without getting to know who is who or where does he/she come from.Those applied for,are kenyans with a desire for education not for race or tribe.

  • zach mburu said:

    it”s very in order hon member coz regular students pay peanuts compared with ssp who are also poor

  • zach mburu said:

    all animals are equal but some are more equal so dont expect equity when it comes to fund issues

  • zach mburu said:

    mwenye haja huenda chooni.go to aniversarry towers

  • mercy said:

    the helb board should respond very quickly to self sponsered students.most of us miss exams yet we applied for the loan early enough .it would have been better if they restricted it to jab students instead of giving us false hopes.its high time you guys stopped playing with us.shall we wait till we graduate

  • dzeimz jimorish said:

  • Admin said:

    @ Fredrick, Please contact HELB directly.

  • Admin said:

    @TOM Makori, You might need to follow up with HELB. Plan to visit their offices to get clarification.

  • Buria Eric said:
