Maisha Bora society was registered and lived under the name Kimbo Sacco until October 2003 when we acquired our current name Maisha Bora Sacco after the sale of Kimbo brand by Unilever. This development further created an opportunity for the Sacco to broaden the common bond to accommodate members outside our traditional bond of Unilever and Research International. The change of name also reflected the diversity in our membership further leveraging the strategic direction to grow the Sacco.
Over the years the Maisha Bora SACCO has grown from strength to strength to become a commercially autonomous, democratically controlled and self-reliant business enterprise. This is due to the support received from our members and other stakeholders at large. Currently, our asset base stands at 2.08 billion; our loan portfolio is 1.8 billion. The assets are supported by member deposits of 1.7 billion, share capital of 101 million and other liabilities. The Sacco has also experienced growth is staff numbers and professional experience.
