Addressing the Financial Gap for Smallholder Farmers
Historically, access to finance has been a significant hurdle for smallholder farmers and individuals engaged in value chain activities. However, through Akili Development Sacco, this longstanding gap is being bridged. We are proud to offer our members access to loans with significantly lower interest rates compared to traditional banking institutions. This means that not only can communities grow their businesses, but they can do so with financial support that is both accessible and affordable.
A cornerstone for empowerment
Akili Development Sacco is not only a financial enabler but a cornerstone of empowerment for communities involved in agricultural value chains. Through this cooperative, we are actively working to reduce financial barriers, making it possible for individuals and communities to thrive in their business ventures while contributing to the sustainable development of our region.
