According to the statistics, most of the students in Kenyan  public universities pursuing Degree and Diploma courses  have a history of coming from less fortunate families in which even raising fee is a big problem.  These families  have to work in peoples farms so that they get their daily bread.

what is different with these learners from the learners raised in well off families, they can not afford living luxury lives like, living in rental houses where they  pay rent, buying expensive food  stuffs.

Instead they prefer living in university hostels which are relatively cheaper to afford and even purchase cheap food within the university.

 

By  doing all these, the students are able to make much savings from  the little amount of money they have from HELB hence  enabling  them survive  all through the semester.

 

 

In some scenarios,  some of the students are responsible  for their lives in campus. They are always  put into task where they are supposed to pay fee for themselves from the loans they get because their guardians and parents cannot manage to pay fee and the same time upkeep fee.

 

 

There are students who also  get forced to defer their courses go get jobs and come later when they have enough finances to  sustain them in university life.

 

 

These learners education life is in dilemma, if the government is  going  to fail in releasing fund to the students then most of them are likely  going to postpone their studies and even drop because of lack of finance.

 

 

Parents and other education stakeholders have urged the government to reconsider setting the budget for  HELB so that the 95,000 students receive their HELB loans.
