Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies, commonly known as Saccos provide members with a wide range of financial services to meet their needs. The needs range from savings, consumption to development loans. Saccos bridge the gap left by banks as members can borrow more at convenient interest rates.

The Saccos play important role in socioeconomic development of members and communities in general through enabling easy access to financial services, encourage savings as well as creating employment opportunities. Saccos also support community development efforts like helping community access to social services through cooperate social responsibility.

The number of Saccos in the country keeps on growing as the demand for financial access increases. Some of the most popular Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies in Kenya are ; Stima Sacco, Harambee Sacco, Mwalimu Sacco, Hekima Sacco, Nyati Sacco, Mwito Sacco among others.

However, online processes have proved to be risky at some point where some members end up forging signatures of their colleague members in order to acquire loans. Since most of the loans acquire signatories in the name of guarantors, it has been noted by one of the Saccos that some of it's members are involved in this vice.

Nyati Sacco has issued a notice to thousands of its members countrywide on change of operations in loan application process. This measure is meant in to stop fraudulent means of securing loans. The communication was sent via text messages to the members.

The Sacco has upgraded its system where members can apply for any loan through emailing scanned copies, a move that was much encouraged during this Covid-19 pandemic. The resolution means that beginning next month, those in need of loans will have to fill hard copies and take them in person to the Sacco headquarters in South B or send through friends, authorised representatives or courier services.
