Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Professor Amon Murwira has revealed that starting this month, students at tertiary institutions will be able to access educational loans. Speaking to the Sunday News, Murwira said:
We are rolling out the student’s loan scheme and the only sticking issue is to discuss terms that are favourable to our students because some of them may not be able to provide a guarantor and that’s what we are working on to make it easy for the learners.
The scheme will start this February when tertiary colleges and universities start a new semester. The application forms are already at the tertiary learning institutions. ZB Bank, CBZ, Eduloan recently made pledges when we met President (Emmerson) Mnangagwa. Other financial institutions are still to come on board.
