Helb Kenya: Downloading HELB loan Application Form In PDF, Checking Loan Status and Helb Products

Higher Educations Loans Board (HELB Kenya) of Kenya is a body that helps Kenyan college and university students fund their education.
 For regular students, some of  the amount allocated is send directly to the student bank account to cater for upkeep and accommodation. The remaining balance is usually sent directly to the institution tution account.  This is to cater for only ksh 8,000 of the tution fee.

For self-sponsored students usually referred to as, “students on parallel program”, the loan awarded is usually higher with the whole amount being sent directly to the institution. Besides the Helb loan, the self-sponsored students also stand a chance to benefit from the HELB bursary.

For colleges like KMTCs and medical students in local universities they benefit from FUNZO loan and AFYA loan respectively. Tivet students also qualify for helb loan. For details about these helb loans, kindly check the below links.
