Eastra and Pathways partner with CIO East Africa to digitize Saccos

Andrew Karanja, Abdulrazak Adan and Laura Chite all members of the board for Saccotech forum, keenly follow a discussion about the forum

The deposit-taking Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies (SACCOs) are one of the most important and often visible typology of cooperatives that transact the business of mobilization of savings and advancement of credit facilities to their members.

For centuries on end, Saccos have operated without giving much attention to technological advancements that have illustrated ease of operations and consequently success to many different industries.

Technology can however not continue to be wrapped for this space, what has stirred the SACCOTECH forum, hosted by CIO East Africa together with many other partners to inculcate values of the new technologies into Saccos to achieve seamless operations and maximize upbeat results.

CIO East Africa is thus gratified to onboard the partners aligning support for the premier SACCOTECH forum, a one day event slated on the 10th of April 2019 at the Serena Hotel.
