The Students’ Loan Bureau (SLB) is extending the deadline for delinquent borrowers to clear their balances before it publishes their names and pictures in the newspaper.
Borrowers will now have until next week Tuesday to make suitable payments to avoid publication on March 11.
The SLB says this is due to the positive response it’s been getting from borrowers who’ve been making arrangements to clear their arrears.
Public Education and Public Relations Manager at the SLB, Olivia Briscoe, says the agency is mobilizing more staff and resources to facilitate the increase in the number of persons seeking to be regularized.
She says borrowers may also contact the SLB via email or by calling the entity.
Borrowers may call the SLB at 6194752 or email the Bureau at firstname.lastname@example.org.
