Egypt's Nasser Social Bank (NSB) will offer a loan of a maximum of EGP 50,000 to pay school fees in an attempt to ease the burden on Egyptians families, Deputy Chairman of NSB Sherif Farouk said on Wednesday.

The loan is offered in support to needy families and low-income brackets, elaborated Farouk.

He added that it is expected that the loan will be repaid within 10 months.

The program targets government employees and pensioners, as well as private sector employees and the self-employed.
