Co-op Bank has deepened its strategic partnership with the giant Metropolitan National Sacco (formerly Kiambu Teachers Sacco) to streamline and enhance service delivery to the members.

The Bank is offering Corporate advisory services through its subsidiary, Co-op Consultancy to build capacity for long term sustainability. In addition, under a Corporate Restructure Program, the Bank has restructured the Sacco’s funding requirements to better manage the members’ monthly loan demands as well as the overall liquidity flows aimed at a complete turnaround of the Sacco

Metropolitan National Sacco is one of the largest Saccos in the over 15 million member co-operative movement and has a membership of over 100,000, a total assets base of Ksh 13.6 Billion and runs 8 branches spread across the country.

The Bank has re-launched the Saccolink debit card, Sacco Personal Cheques and trade finance partnership to increase the Sacco’s revenue base through its front office service activity (FOSA).
