Savings and Credit Cooperative Annual (SACCA) Congress will be held in Kenya later this year. Plans to host the 2024 SACCA Congress in the country have started in earnest with the constitution of a high-level working group.

The Congress will go along the same lines as the previous Continental Congresses that made important contributions towards the progress of Saccos focusing on a holistic approach toward community resilience in the continent and beyond, based on the collective capacity of people helping people.


Attend SACCA Congress to enhance knowledge on cooperative policies, leaders urged


The yearly event is organized by the African Confederation of Co-operative Savings and Credit Association (ACCOSCA). Being one of the Africa’s largest annual events, the confederation gathers Saccos across the internet to explore new ways to harness cooperative growth.

The event is expected to feature distinguished keynote speakers, and prominent leaders from the cooperatives sector, renowned experts, who will provide valuable insights and thought-provoking discussions.

The federation also provides support and resources to cooperative.  It opened its doors in 1968 and is currently headquartered in Nairobi.

The 2023 edition took place in Botswana last October with Kenyan Cabinet Secretary in charge of Co-operatives and MSMEs Development Simon Chelugui in attendance where he received the 2024 SACCA mantle from his Botswana Counterpart Karabo Socraat Gare to host this year’s Congress.

Under the theme “Strengthening Sustainable Financial Systems for Economic Development” SACCA 2023 attracted close to 1000 leaders from over 30 countries in Africa and beyond, creating avenues to collaborate, empower, and collectively formulate ways to address members’ and communities’ challenges.
