“Although we retained the same percentage payouts, the amounts are higher because the share capital increased during the year, and the member deposits also increased. So the base on which the percentage is calculated is what increased thereby increasing the total quantum from Ksh 3.5 billion to Ksh 4 billion while retaining the same percentages,” said Mary Maalu, National Treasurer.

The Sacco members now expect to be paid 485.5 million shillings from share capital compared to 395.7 million shillings paid out last year while earnings from interest will amount to 3.6 billion shillings from 3.2 billion shillings.
