About Higher Education Loans Board
The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) is a state body established by an Act of Parliament – CAP 213A in 1995 mandated to provide loans, bursaries, and scholarships to Kenyans pursuing higher education in recognized Kenyan Universities and Colleges and to recover the same after completion of studies to facilitate the establishment of a revolving fund. The Board is therefore well aligned with Chapter 4, Section 43 (1) (f) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, that every person has the right to education.
