How SOS SACCO digitized their operations with Kwara

Lenin Lumumba

Case Study


SOS SACCO has over 300 members. Their membership is spread across the Kenyan towns of Mombasa, Eldoret, Nairobi, Meru and Kisumu. The SACCO wanted a core banking system that would help them to improve service delivery to members. They also wanted a system that would offer mobile banking to its members. Initially they used Excel, which required a lot of manual updating. In addition, their member application process took long due lots of paperwork.

Going Digital with Kwara

In April 2020 during the height of Covid 19, they signed up for Kwara Pronto. We launched  Kwara Pronto last year to help SACCOs at risk of disruption from the Coronavirus pandemic to quickly go digital, remain in operation and continue serving members.

They got onboarded on Pronto and used it for 4 months. In September 2020 they converted to Kwara Core, our SACCO admin platform. In October we launched Kwara Connect, our SACCO Member App. SOS SACCO was the first SACCO to use this digital solution to enable their members to view their SACCO accounts in real time, from anywhere.

SOS SACCO on Kwara

Since they started using Kwara they have been able to  generate members’ statements efficiently and in time. The system has also greatly improved member registration up from 7 days to 15 minutes. This is 224 times as fast.

“Kwara has helped us to serve our members better. We can easily generate reports and our members can also view their SACCO accounts from anywhere using the Kwara Connect App”
