Surepay has teamed up with the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) to enhance the efficiency of student loan disbursements. This partnership introduces a streamlined process for tracking and accessing funds, ensuring a hassle-free experience for students.
Loan Disbursement Process:
- Approval: Upon approval of a student’s HELB loan, the funds are disbursed through Surepay.
- Surepay Message: Students receive a Surepay message to their registered Safaricom mobile number, confirming the disbursement.
- Accessing Funds: To access the funds, students can withdraw through approved methods, such as the M-Pesa app or USSD code *642#.
Surepay HELB Registration and Login: As of now, students don’t need to individually register for Surepay. HELB manages the registration process on behalf of the students. This ensures a seamless experience without additional steps for the beneficiaries.
Surepay App in Kenya: Surepay offers a dedicated app for both iPhone and Android users. The Surepay app can be found on the Apple App Store for iPhone users and the Google Play Store for Android smartphone users. These apps provide a user-friendly interface to track and manage disbursed funds conveniently.
Benefits of Surepay and HELB Partnership:
- Transparent Tracking: Surepay allows senders and beneficiaries to transparently track the money sent and monitor its usage.
- Convenient Disbursement: HELB leverages Surepay to disburse funds directly to students’ M-Pesa accounts, ensuring swift access.
- Efficient Communication: Students receive Surepay messages promptly, keeping them informed about the status of their disbursed funds.
Conclusion: The collaboration between Surepay and HELB marks a significant advancement in the disbursement of student loans. With a user-friendly app and an automated process, students can enjoy a more accessible and efficient financial experience.
