In his comments Dr Grant Kabango said that SACCOs are proving to be a better alternative to banks. They require members to save first,in addition to accessing loans. SACCOs have the potential to reach out to more Malawians including those living in rural areas where most banks do not operate.
MUSCCO’ Board president didn’t leave stone unturned bysaying that our SACCOs that have licenses are smiling because they can confidently say that are now more sustainable than before.This brings more confidence to the members that once they save money in a SACCO, their money is safe.
Mr Fletcher Mhango MUSCCO Board president.
