“It is a savings that enables members to accumulate funds
for education purposes”

EQEAS SACCO

OUR BACKGROUND

Sometime in the autumn of 2021, a small group of banana farmers and coffee farmers together with workers of in Sheema a mountainous District, whirled away their mid-morning break over a cup of tea.

Their life challenges mostly revolving around personal financial needs. Yet, at that time of the month they wouldn’t access any salary advance from their paying departments and no money lending institution would consider them for financial services unless they are paid salaries.

They were concerned that they could no longer meet the rising costs of living against ‘flat pay slips’. There were a myriad of bills to be settled and yet end month seemed an eternity.

But wait! Someone had an idea. They could form a savings scheme to collect individual savings and advance loans from the savings. And hey presto! EQEAS Sacco was born! a Sacco-sitter is Nondi Wilson.
