KCB has in addition to the face masks initiative, set aside some good amount of money to support students, teachers and private school owners with affordable loans to help int the easy reopening process. 

"This is one of the all-round initiative which we have rolled out which include a financial support mechanism to boost schools operations. This will enable both public and private schools to access loan facilities towards complying with the health guidelines set by the ministries of Health and Education," Mr. Oigara added.
