The student loan trust fund is a small loan given to tertiary students to help them complete their course. Its very worrying when one does not have enough resources to complete his/her education.
It becomes worse too, to realize after school you are in the house and still student loan officials will be texting you and calling you to pay for your loan.
The student loan after their few calls, goes ahead to publish your name on their website for not paying the loan or for defaulting the loan.
