The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) offers various means of repaying HELB loans such as via M-PESA paybill 200800 and Credit or Debit (ATM) card.
The board also supports loan repayment via bank deposits to various banks. This can be done either directly by the borrower or as monthly deductions from one’s salary through an employer.
These monthly instalments are however expected not to be more than 25% of the employee’s basic salary.
On completion of the loan repayment, the borrower is issue with a HELB Clearance Certificate. On the other hand, failure to repay the HELB loan as agreed on the contract attracts penalties which are added to the borrower’s loan account.
This may also lead to a negative listing in the Credit Reference Bureau (CRB) which lock one out from accessing loan facilities as well as getting the CRB clearance certificate that’s required by employers.
