Our Journey

Orient Sacco is the brainchild of development conscious leaders, whom, to bring services closer to the people, mooted the idea of a new Sacco on the creation of Thika administrative District in 1994. Orient Sacco was registered on 21st January 1997 Under the Name Thika District Teachers Sacco and started its operation in April 1997 with a membership of 598. A need for a FOSA (Front Office Services Activity) was necessitated by growth in membership and need for banking services, which was prompted by the contemptuous treatment given to teachers by Commercial Banks at that time. However Under the Co-operative Societies Act and the Co-operative Societies rules, Cap 490, with the sanction of a special Resolution by the Society‚Äôs Management Board The Society Changed its name From Thika District Teachers Sacco To Orient Sacco Society Limited on 11th January 2013.
