The Murang’a County Government intends to establish a Sacco to enhance economic activities of hawkers and small-scale traders.
The Sacco dubbed Wachuuzi Cooperative Society, is earmarked to bring together hawkers among other small-scale traders and give them a platform to save and access credit services to support their businesses.
Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria has said the county government has come up with a law which will help establish the new Sacco early this year.
Wa Iria who was speaking at the county offices said already recruitment of members has started and so far, 30, 000 hawkers and small-scale traders have registered.
The sacco targets more than 100, 000 members and this will enable them to mobilize resources and start giving loans among other credit services to members so as to boost their economic activities.
