The vibrant and dynamic cooperative movement in Kenya is a key player in the economy, controlling a significant per cent of Kenya’s gross domestic product (GDP). The Cooperative Societies in Kenya provides employment opportunities besides creating the opportunity for people to take control of their own financial affairs. Savings and credit societies (SACCOs), the fastest growing sub-sector in the movement, have mobilized savings in large amounts. Despite the unsurmountable growth, SACCOs in Kenya are exposed to various transparency and accountability issues.
