Tai Sacco Membership Eligibility & Requirements

This article focuses on Tai Sacco membership eligibility and requirements. Tai Sacco is a leading deposit-taking Savings & Credit Society with over 28 years of operation.

The Sacco was incepted and registered in 1992 as a BOSA activity under the name Kiambu Tea Growers Sacco. In January 1999, it opened its FOSA activity in Githunguri Town.

In its urge to diversify and grow its customer base, the sacco changed its name to Tai Sacco Society Limited in 2009. The rebranding was necessitated by the growth in customer base, thus the need for a more encompassing name was felt.
