The students Loan Trust Fund (SLTF), Wishes to inform all loan applicants that, no fees are charged by the SLTF for processing of loan applications. This means that, applying for the students’ loan is free of charge as others are taking money from the applicants as form of fees.

Also the SLTF is about to publish names of Loan defaulters (those owning) on their website and urges them to make payment as stated in their policy:

“The following beneficiaries of the students Loan are due for repayment. The borrowers are default of their monthly installments or have not started repayment of their loans.

We are therefore asking the under-listed borrowers to repay the loan in order for others to access the fund”

They also stated it on their board that the Trust will publish the names of these defaulters and their respective amounts in the national dailies if they fail to repay their loan. Currently there’s no data available on their site
