WHAT IS SACCA CONGRESS?

The biggest Credit Union Congress in Africa

16th – 18th OCTOBER, 2019
MOMBASA | KENYA
Theme: “Embracing Servant Leadership and Inclusivity through Financial Co–operatives”

Servant leadership is a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve. This resonates with the original objective of the SACCO business model which is to provide service “Financial access” to members.

In line with our vision which is to promote Financial Inclusion in Africa, ACCOSCA seeks to provide through this Congress a platform for SACCOs in Africa and all stakeholders to have candid discussions that will then culminate into deliberate and innovative strategies towards achievement of Financial Inclusion.

We are thus seeking to have a culture of Servant Leadership understood, instilled and accepted.
