I did the loan appeal last year, it was successfully verified and I was promised an escalation from the previous amount. After waiting for a long time without seeing any change , I liased with helb and I was told that the budget was low and therefore I could not get any extra money despite the challenges I’m facing to comfortably persue my studies. How will you help coz I’m finding it hard to run my studies.
Kindly, is it a must to take the appeal form to the Huduma?

You have to submit it to any available HELB desk (Huduma Center or Anniversary Towers)
