The Higher Education Loan Board (HELB) has plans to block couples from getting married until they get a HELB clearance certificate.
Higher Education Loans Board CEO Charles Ringera says the Board is working with the AGs office to compel defaulters to pay loans.
The proposal is an exploration to catch former students defaulting payments as they will not receive marriage certificates without the HELB clearance.
Ringera made the revelation on Friday while in Eldoret during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the board and Uasin Gishu County.
Uasin Gishu government agreed to help the lender recover money lent to students who studied at technical colleges in the region.
Governor Ken Mandago said that contractors seeking tenders from his government will need the HELB clearance before engaging in any business.
“There is no way you will be earning Sh 3Million, yet you do not pay your debts,” he said.
