SACCOs in Kenya have a fascinating history, one in which they have elevated their members and benefited the local communities where they are headquartered. 2023 Tai SACCO will commemorate 31 years of operation, which is a noteworthy milestone given the SACCO's poor beginnings.

Currently, the SACCO has branches nationwide, notably in the counties of Kiambu and Nairobi, with over 70 agencies. What goods and services does the Savings and Credit Cooperative provide, and how does one register?

Tai SACCO Background

Under the name Kiambu Tea Growers Sacco, it was established and registered as a Bosa activity in 1992. The Sacco launched its FOSA Operation in Githunguri town in January 1999. In 2009, Sacco changed its name to Tai Sacco Society Limited to expand and diversify its clientele.

Their customer base has continued to expand, necessitating this rebranding. They no longer only serviced tea farmers once the common bond was opened; now, they also serve public servants, dairy and coffee farmers, horticultural and floricultural farmers, the business community, the transportation industry, and many more.

The name Tai is a translation of the Swahili word for eagle. The characteristics and values of an Eagle are well known, hence the name Tai.
