    Hello am really great full for your support.my question is that why are the art approved courses such as law been restricted to only the disabled. I feel the rest have been cheated for sure.

  2. Nicholas Wendo

    Hello HESFB, thanks for the good services and opportunities you are offering to Ugandans.
    My inquiry is that do you offer Education loans to persons intending to pursue certificate courses like a certificate in Nursing, certificate in Laboratory technology or a certificte in Pharmacy?
    Thank you.
