How PTPTN Helps Ensure Higher Education For All

Higher education is widely seen as a key stepping stone in social and economic mobility, but it doesn’t come cheap. For almost three decades, PTPTN has helped many students with loans to help fund their education in order for them to get a good job. However, students must also be aware that financial aid isn’t free money, and that the repayment of PTPTN education loans is important to ensure the sustainability of the programme for future generations. Ahmad Dasuki Abdul Majid of PTPTN talks about PTPTN's efforts to help students with their financial situation, Simpan SSPN and the importance of repayment.
