The prevailing day to day demonstrations, riots, and chaos waged by university students in Tanzania are a result of poor education policies, one of them being the financing of higher education policy. This book examines the policy and how the poor can access education. It notes that the Higher Education Students’ Loans Board which is charged with the task of providing loans to poor students has failed to do the job since it disburses loans to whoever manages to fill up the loan forms. Yet, one can get the loan at certain percentage or at times one cannot get even a single coin. The book may be useful to higher education financing policy actors and students in Tanzania and beyond.
