The idea of SACCOS (Savings and Credit Cooperatives) originated in Germany in 1849 by people who wanted to fight the exploitation by money lenders. Saccos are savings institutions owned by their members and organized on a not-for-profit basis. Members pool their savings, engaging in mutually beneficial financial cooperation & share in the profits and control their own destinies. Saccos inspire a saving culture, Return on investment, Investment opportunities, Cheap Interest on Loans, Limited Liabilities, etc
Palscity Sacco is a paperless social media based Sacco where members pool resources together. The idea started from a Youth Empowerment platform that had County Coordinators and had a dream to create Solutions to their Challenges. The dream could hold County, Constituency and Ward meetings empowering & creating Solutions. However, the team faced financial challenges despite the big individual and group dreams. We then built a Social Media platform for Members to Connect, Share and Discover (www.palscity.com). The Sacco was started by Palscity users as a common bond. With 500k+ users on Palscity in less than 2 years, we aim at having atleast half the users pool resources together under Palscity Sacco. We aim to onboard the unbanked, generation X,Y,Z and older generations and instill in them the Spirit to: SAVE, SAVE, SAVE BORROW (3S,1B) and NOT SAVE, BORROW, SAVE, BORROW (1S,1B) The 115% Emergency Loan comes in to cover all members.
