The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) has announced the waiving of Ksh 1,000 fee that job seekers have been paying in order to obtain the compliance certificate.
Helb has been issuing compliance certificates to non-beneficiaries of student loans at a fee of Kshs 1,000 to meet the “cost of the certificate and other administrative expenses”.
This means the document will now be issued free of charge, signalling relief for job seekers whose resources are already limited.
The certificate is one of the key documents required when an individual applies for public jobs as provided for in Chapter VI on Leadership and Integrity of the Constitution.
Institutions often use HELB compliance certificates to assess individuals in areas such as credit worthiness, social responsibility and integrity.
