KCSE candidates successfully placed by Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) are eligible for a Higher Education Loans Board education loan which can be applied through the HELB portal.
HELB gives undergraduate students a minimum loan of 35,000 Kenya shillings and a maximum of 50, 000 shillings, and a bursary of Ksh. 8,000 depending on their needs.
Higher Education Loans Board also gives loans to private-sponsored undergraduate students.
Students under TVET who are placed through KUCCPS can apply for a loan of up to 40,000 Kenya shillings.
All loans attract an interest rate of 4%, beginning from the time you receive the loan. So take caution to apply only for the amount of money you really need!
