This was revealed by Olavi Hamwele, NSFAF’s chief human capital and corporate affairs Era, after the 2018 NSFAF online application process officially launched yesterday. He said although the cumulative dispensed amount is N.5 billion to date, it should be noted that not all amounts dispensed are recoverable, saying some were grants, contributions to bilateral or multilateral scholarships, solidarity scholarships, NSFAF special initiatives or co-funding. The Fund hired a South African company called New Integrated Credit Solutions (NICS) and a Namibian company called Tribesmen Investment as debt collectors to help track down graduates who had avoided paying back the NS- FAF loans.
