HESLB KUANZA KUPOKEA MAOMBI YA MIKOPO MWEZI UJAO

Bodi ya Mikopo ya Wanafunzi wa Elimu ya Juu (HESLB) inapenda kuwataarifu wananchi kuwa inatarajia kuanza kupokea maombi ya mikopo ya elimu ya juu kwa mwaka wa masomo 2018/2019 kuanzia wiki ya kwanza ya mwezi ujao (Mei, 2018) baada ya kukamilishwa kwa maboresho makubwa ya mfumo wa uombaji kwa njia ya mtandao.

Maboresho ya mfumo wa maombi

Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa HESLB Bw. Abdul-Razaq Badru amesema katika taarifa yake leo (Jumanne, Aprili 17, 2018) kuwa maombi yote yatapokelewa kwa njia ya mtandao (www.olas.heslb.go.tz) ambao umefanyiwa maboresho na Kituo cha Kompyuta cha Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es salaam (UCC-UDSM).

Aidha, Bw. Badru amesema dirisha hilo la litafunguliwa sambamba na kutangazwa kwa mwongozo wa kina utakaotoa utaratibu wa kuwasilisha maombi, tarehe ya mwisho ya kuwasilisha maombi, sifa na vigezo vitakavyotumika katika kuchambua na kutoa mikopo kwa mwaka ujao wa masomo unaotarajiwa kuanza mwezi Oktoba, 2018.

“Tunawasihi wale wote wanaotarajia kuomba mkopo wa elimu ya juu kusoma kwa makini mwongozo tutakaoutoa kwa vyombo vya habari na tovuti mwanzoni mwa mwezi Mei, 2018 na kuuzingatia,” amesema Bw. Badru.

Bw. Badru amefafanua kuwa wito wa Bodi ya Mikopo umetolewa kutokana na uzoefu wa miaka iliyopita ambapo waombaji wa mikopo waliwasilisha maombi yao bila kuzingatia mwongozo uliotolewa na kusababisha baadhi ya wanafunzi kukosa mikopo.

“Mwaka jana, kwa mfano, zaidi ya waombaji 10,027 kati ya waombaji zaidi ya 61,000 hawakuambatisha nyaraka muhimu kama vyeti vya kuzaliwa au hata vile vya vifo vilivyothibitishwa na Wakala wa Usajili, Ufilisi na Udhamini (RITA) kama tulivyoelekeza,” amesema.

Nyaraka muhimu zinazohitajika

Nyaraka nyingine muhimu ambazo waombaji mikopo wanapaswa kuziandaa ni pamoja na nakala za vyeti vya kitaaluma za kidato cha nne, sita na stashahada ambazo zimethibitishwa na Kamishna wa Viapo yaani Wakili au Hakimu.

Aidha, wanafunzi waombaji wenye ulemavu au wenye wazazi wenye ulemavu wanapaswa kuwa na barua zinazothibitisha ulemavu huo kutoka kwa Mganga Mkuu wa Mkoa, Wilaya au Kituo cha Afya cha Serikali.

Bw. Badru ameongeza kuwa wanafunzi ambao walifadhiliwa katika masomo yao ya Sekondari au Stashahada (Diploma) wawe na barua za uthibitisho wa udhamini huo kutoka katika taasisi zilizogharamia masomo yao.

Maafisa wa HESLB kutoa elimu mikoani

Katika hatua nyingine, Bw. Badru amesema mwaka huu maafisa wa Bodi ya Mikopo watatembelea mikoa mbalimbali ili kukutana na waombaji mikopo kwa lengo la kuwaelimisha waombaji mikopo kuhusu taratibu sahihi za kuwasilisha maombi yao ya mikopo kwa njia ya mtandao. Ratiba na maeneo itakapofanyia mikutano hiyo itatangazwa mwanzoni mwa mwezi Mei, 2018.

HESLB ilianza kazi rasmi mwaka 2005 ili, pamoja na majukumu mengine, kutoa mikopo ya elimu ya juu kwa watanzania wahitaji na wenye sifa na kukusanya mikopo iliyoiva ambayo ilitolewa na Serikali tangu mwaka 1994/1995.


Imetolewa na:

Maombi ya mikopo ya wanafunzi wa Elimu ya juu yamefunguliwa rasmi May 10, 2018 hadi July 15, 2018. Karibu tushiriki kujuzana mambo muhimu katika mchakato huu.
====

Dar es Salaam. Bodi ya Mikopo ya Wanafunzi wa Elimu ya Juu (HESLB) imeongeza idadi ya wanafunzi watakaonufaika na mikopo hiyo kutoka 33, 000 hadi 40,000 kwa mwaka wa masomo 2018/19.

Akizungumza leo, Mei 10, na wanahabari, Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa HESLB Abdurazaq Badru amesema kwa mwaka wa kwanza wanafunzi 40,000 watapata mikopo ikiwa ni ongezeko la wanafunzi 7,000 ikilinganishwa na 33,000 waliopata mwaka jana.

“Kwa mwaka huu jumla ya Sh 437 bilioni zimetengwa kwa ajili ya mikopo hiyo,” amesema

Kadhalika Badru, amesema Bodi hiyo imefungua dirisha la kupokea maombi ya mikopo , zoezi ambalo litafanyika miezi miwili kuanzia leo.

Amesema mwaka huu kipaumbele kitawekwa kwenye kozi ambazo zina uhaba wa wataalam pamoja na zile zenye mchango katika viwanda.

"Katika kuhakikisha dhamira ya serikali ya kuwa Tanzania ya viwanda inatimia, tutaweka kipaumbele kwenye kozi ambazo zitazalisha wataalam,” amesema.

Badru amesema mwaka huu pia bodi imeongeza wigo wa kutoa mikopo kwa wanafunzi wa stashahada.

Amesema hapo awali ngazi ya stashahada walikuwa wanapewa mikopo wale wa kozi za ualimu pekee ila sasa maeneo yenye uhitaji wa wataalam nayo yatapewa fursa hiyo.

Itabidi uwasiliane nao ikibidi uende kama uko karibu ili mhakiki kiasi ulichopewa. Baada ya hapo ni wewe kulipa hiyo 25% kwa njia utakayoelekezwa na upate risiti. Then unaweza kuomba tena.
