HOW TO REPAY YOUR HELB LOAN

Higher Education Loans Board, HELB was established in Kenya to raise sufficient funds to facilitate tertiary level education, recover matured loans and attain a faster turn- around in the loan repayment process.

It is divided into three:

  1. Allocation section

It focuses on the collection and updates on loanees’ accounts

It also has a Debt Management Department which is aimed at recovering all matured loans as per the HELB Act 1995.

REPAYMENT OF HELB LOANS

You are expected to repay your undergraduate HELB loan within one year of completion of studies or the period prescribed by the Board.

You are however free to make voluntary payments before or after completing your studies.

COMPLETION OF HELB LOAN REPAYMENT

Upon completion of repayment of the loan, you should seek clearance from HELB.

Kindly take note of the fact that only HELB and not your employer can confirm your loan repayment status.

OVER-REPAYMENT

In case you pay any extra amount, HELB will refund you.

To claim a refund from HELB, you should fill the Loan Recovery Enquiry Form.

To claim a refund, please fill in the Loan Recovery Enquiry form.

JIELIMISHE LOANS FOR SALARIED STUDENTS

Unlike undergraduate loans, Jielimishe loans are due for repayment immediately upon repayment.

Successful applicants are normally notified through e-mail.

HELB LOANEE DUTIES/OBLIGATIONS

All HELB beneficiaries are expected to begin repaying their loans within the period specified by the Board.

It is advisable to repay your loan earlier as this reduces the financial burden normally experienced during mid-life.

Other benefits of repaying the loan include accessibility to bank loans, reduced number of loans and reduced chances of being blacklisted by the Credit Reference Bureau (CRB).

For easier repayment, HELB has provided many avenues through which you can repay your loan.

The payment modes suit both employed and self-employed loanees.
