County trains Coop leaders to revolutionize sector’s landscape

Uasin Gishu County’s Department of Trade, Industrialization, Tourism, Cooperatives and Enterprise Development has trained cooperatives and Saccos across the county to revolutionize the cooperative landscape.

The training exercise encompassed a wide range of vital topics focusing on areas such as share mobilization, book-keeping and auditing, management strategies, and embracing new technological trends.

The department’s County Executive Committee Member (CECM) Martha Cheruto said the capacity building forum emphasized on optimizing output of cooperatives.

“I want to encourage cooperatives to take advantage of the county enterprise loans, which offer favourable terms to enable them to expand and subsequently ensure that they pay back county dues for other societies to benefit as well. Let’s take the loans since their interest rates are low compared to banking institutions,” she said.

She added that the county is nurturing a thriving cooperative ecosystem by equipping industry players with vital knowledge and skills, and by encouraging innovation and inclusivity to make a lasting positive impact.
