Kilifi Teachers Sacco Society Ltd
Kilifi Teachers Sacco Society Ltd was started when less than 100 members in Malindi started mobilizing savings (shares) on 26th June 1972 but it was not until 14th September 1974 when the society was officially registered.
The major objective of the Sacco has all along been to afford members-most of whom are low-income earners- an opportunity to save, thereby creating a pool from which they can borrow at an affordable interest for productive and provident purposes. Statistical information shown below gives an indication of the level of the Saccos growth since inception.
From the time of inception upto 1990, the Kilifi Teachers Sacco offices had been based in Malindi, until they were shifted to Kilifi. However, due to the rapid growth, the Sacco has now a Head office and two branches at Kilifi, Malindi and Mariakani respectively.
To be an outstanding Sacco in providing efficient, effective and affordable financial services in Kenya
