Orient Sacco is the brain child of development conscious leaders, whom, in an effort to bring services closer to the people, mooted the idea of a new Sacco on the creation of Thika administrative District in 1994. Orient Sacco was registered on 21st January 1997 and started its operation in April 1997 with a membership of 598. A need for a FOSA (Front Office Services Activity) was necessitated by growth in membership and need for banking services, which was prompted by the contemptuous treatment given to teachers by Commercial Banks at that time.
Necessity is the mother of invention. The problem acted as an eye-opener, leading the Society to start up Front Office Services in February 2001.
Since inception, the Society is marked with several key milestones which include facilitating economic growth of our members through availing cheap credit and an increase in savings. Therefore, the Society has made remarkable improvement and has grown and progressed from strength to strength in aspects of membership, share capital and services delivery to our members
“To be the leading and most reliable financial partner”
“To mobilize funds to offer timely and competitive financial services to our customers in order to uplift their socio-economic status”
Tuungane Sacco ni yetu!
