“78,000 loanees owe HELB KSh 8.1B. With 100% penalty waiver until June, we call upon all the beneficiaries to take advantage of the generous offer by the government.

"From today 3rd May, 2018 to 30th June, 2018, all HELB loan beneficiaries will benefit 100% penalty waiver,” Amb. Amina Mohammed said.
