Fariji Sacco has partnered with Uplands Premier Dairy and Foods Limited to assist every household in Lari to own a dairy cow. It is due to this initiative that over 12,000 members are now into dairy farming. It has also been on a turnaround mode over the past three years after putting in place a new board of directors made up of seasoned bankers, experienced business people and renowned farmers, to improve its financial performance.
According to Mr Peter Kamunya, chairman of Fariji Sacco board of directors who has been the main brain behind the success at the Society, it is a new dawn for Fariji as it strives to improve service delivery to members.
In its new strategic plan, the Sacco is seeking to eliminate all complaints by offering quality services tailored to members demands and needs. Fariji Sacco has a diversified portfolio of products and services, has opened its common bond and has won numerous accolades as being the most improved Sacco in Kiambu County.
“We aim to be the Sacco of Choice and all strategies are in place to make this happen. Watch this space,” said Lydia Muthoni, Fariji Sacco’s Operations Manager.
