All you need to do is set up parameters that the system will verify before declaring the qualifications of a member’s loan request.
Once the amount qualified is verified, the system links to the M-pesa portal automatically to check on the available balance before dispensing the loan amount to the members’ phone number instantly.
This feature can be accessed either through a USSD platform or the online members portal.
This kind of innovation serves to promote compliance among members so as to ensure they qualify for higher amounts of this mobile loan.

Family Bank, KCB, DTB & M-Pesa.
This allows seamless communication between the financial institutions & the Co-operative at no extra fee.
The system will receive debit notifications whenever members make payments to the Sacco irrespective of the channel they use.
This in turn reduces the need to manually post transactions because the data is automatically dispensed within the system.
This kind of transactions promote transparency & accuracy of the transactional data from members. It also serves to ease up on the laborious tasks of banking reconciliation.

Each of these have a one-off fee of Kshs 10,000.
