  1. I tried to apply for a student loan but they refused to give the application form I had to get from NATSAVE because I completed my secondary education in 2019
    I am female Zambian aged 17 I would like to recommend that the board should try to change this system there are alot of girls out in rural areas who have good results but due to the long procedure and the period they have to wait to qualify to get a student loan is not good. This will only promote early pregnancies and early marriages if us female Children are encouraged to pursue our careers you will see a great generation to come, it’s clear that even from the list you have now the number of people who will get the student loans will be males
    Let’s not just talk about change let us bring change.
