Yes. They planned for it for a year and went through the due process. Download the pdf to see the reasons stated among them is to be in line with sasra ratios; very much in order. Also it is for members only and given a 1year period to pay.

We were just doing some Math with a buddy. Some statician please verify our numbers.

There are so many Sacco's offering 1% loan repayment interest Rates to their members but the fine print here is 1% per month on the loan.

The people taking the loan are made to believe that they are actually paying an interest rate of 1% compared to banks that charge 16+%.

When we did the math...the 1% translated to a whopping 12.68% P.A.

A SACCO like Kenya U.S.A Sacco is offering 8% if you take a USD loan up to 10 times your deposit.

Were we correct in our calculation or does the 1% that Sacco's promise actually translate to something else only "Smart Bankers" understand?


Which bank in Kenya is giving lower than 12%?

You did your math wrongly as the 1% per month comes to 6.50% and not 12....!!!

GOODLIFE? Sounds suspect!



They might not in the SASRA list because they are not licensed to carry out deposit taking business.

8% return per month for a SACCO is not sustainable. This is because the principal income of SACCOs is interest charged on loans and for most SACCOs this ranges between 1% to 1.5% per month.


How is UNAITAS managing(8-9% dvd) or it's operating like a bank/MFI?

Missed the members only part.

Thought it was targeted at the general public.

But then again isn't it viable to contact members directly than these expensive tv adverts ?

Members are infomed through branch meetings which barely a quarter of members attend those meetings. Going media way ensures nearly all members are informed and also serves as a way of advertising new members to join.

Hi SASRA does not have funds to compensate SACCO members. In other words, while there is a deposit protection fund for depositors in the banks, there is none for SACCOs. However, note that SACCOs can individually take insurance to cover the deposit it holds for members and this is encouraged. Another thing to note also is that SASRA monitors SACCO's performance and incase it notes any financial difficulties, it will put the SACCO under receivership.

Finally note that SASRA only monitors a small fraction of SACCOs which are only deposit taking SACCOs and are licensed by them. This stand at around 180 SACCOs out of the 5000 SACCOs registered under the ministry of Cooperatives.

The Deposit Guarantee Fund (The SACCO Societies Act of 2008) provides for the protection of members’ deposits up to an amount of Ksh 100k per member in the event of collapse.

While the SACCO Societies Act of 2008 provides for the Deposit Guarantee Fund, this is yet to be operationalized by the Co-operative ministry.

Thank you. I had checked the website and just wanted information that could not be accessed online. Thank you boss. I however decided not to save with them. They offer loans of upto thrice your savings at 12% p.a STRAIGHT LINE...thats why I left their offices without another word.They mostly target bodaboda guys and farmers who cant tell the difference between straight line and reducing balance and those who are blinded by 12% figure.

@faa, before you go to SASRA, have a look at your former SACCO bylaws. They would normally indicate a timeline within which refunds are done - 3mths, 6mnths etc. This is to cover any guarantees made that may need to be cancelled etc etc. the good thing with a SACCO is you will finally get back your savings.
