Following members’ suggestions given through members’ surveys, social media, emails, education forums and conversations, the Board of Directors of the SACCO is pleased to announce the following product reforms.

1. Loan multiplier
Increase the loan eligibility to four times the members’ deposits, up from the current three times.

2. Guarantorship multiplier
To give more room to members to guarantee each other, the eligibility of guarantorship has been increased from three times to four times members’ deposits for all loan products.

Note: Repayment period for Okoa Advance loan has been extended from 10 months to 12 months at a flat interest rate of 1% per month.

4. Special loan
Some members are not able to access additional loans due to two thirds limitation. The Special loan has been reviewed to include the following features:
*It can be used for amalgamating part or all outstanding loans at no cost
*The repayment period is 10 years (120 months)
*Interest rate will be 1.29% per month on reducing balance.
The above reforms will result in reduction of member’s allotments after amalgamating the existing loans.

Note: Members will not take home any cash on this product. The existing guarantors of the loan(s) being amalgamated will still be eligible to guarantee this product

5. Deposit banding
The banding has been expanded with an aim of releasing more funds to the members to enable them apply for more loans. The new banding is as follows:
