MARTHA MBUTHIA : I HAVE HONED MY SKILLS IN FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

Martha  Mbuthia teaches at Karura Primary School in Kiambu County. She joined Mentor Sacco in 2022 immediately after being employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). “Mentor Sacco always supports me whenever I am in financial need,”  said Naomi during the members’  information day (MID) at Kikuyu Township Primary School in Kiambu County. “I passionately urge those who have not yet joined the Sacco to do so; they will reap a lot of benefits,” she added. 

Martha thanked the Sacco’s management  for successfully  organizing the MID at Kikuyu Township  Primary School whose turnout was high. “I have benefited a lot from the presentations that were made in today’s MID,” she said adding that she is now well equipped   to manage her financial resources prudently.

JUSTUS KETER : MENTOR SACCO HAS HELPED ME TO DIVERSIFY MY INCOME

Justus  Keter, a teacher at Kikuyu Township Primary School joined Mentor Sacco in 2023. “Early this year [2024] I qualified for a loan which I invested in a real estate project in my rural   home. This has given me a new income stream,” he happily shared.  Keter further observed that the loan’s processing  process was very short and as a customer, he got a memorable experience.

After attending  the MID, Keter said that he had learnt how to diversify his investment and to channel all his income through Mentor Sacco so that he can qualify for a bigger loan once appraised. “I will now plan on how to supplement my salary with income from other investments,” he said adding that the 2024 Mentor Sacco members’ information days theme – ‘ Empowering members to add value to their lives through prudent financial management’ – was very appropriate. “I really thank Mentor Sacco because of widely sharing information  with its members hence enabling them to make well informed decisions,” he ended.

JOSEPH WAWERU EQUIPPED WITH FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT SKILLS

Joseph  Waweru  is a teacher at Milimani Primary school in Nairobi county. He became a member of Mentor Sacco in 2019. His best experience with the Sacco is when it financed him to complete a real estate  project in his rural area. “It was  a very  challenging situation since I was in the final stages of that  project, but unfortunately, I had run short of funds,” he explained. “I approached Mentor Sacco and within twenty four hours, a loan to complete the project had been processed  for me,” he added. Currently, the project is generating  income which he is channeling  through Mentor Sacco.  

From his share capital and ordinary deposits with the Sacco, Waweru earns handsome dividends and interest every  year. “ Since I am still young, I want to grow my savings with the Sacco as I strive to secure my future,” he added. Further, he said  that he uses the Sacco’s mobile banking platform to conveniently access its products and services.

 Waweru thanked the Sacco’s management for organizing  members’ information days with  resourceful facilitators every year. “Today, I have equipped myself with skills to manage my   financial resources prudently, thanks to my Sacco,” he ended.

BOORDON LIHANDA:  MAKING WISE INVESTMENT DECISIONS

Boordon Lihanda  teaches  at Muguga Green Primary School in Nairobi county.  Disciplined in savings, Lihanda joined Mentor Sacco in 2023. So far, he has got one loan from the Sacco. “ I used my first loan to purchase a piece of land in Bungoma County,” he said. “ My goal is to accumulate   a lot of savings with the Sacco before I retire,” said the young teacher.

 Lihanda   grows  crops like maize and beans in the piece of land that Mentor Sacco financed him to purchase, which he sells  for  a good profit. “ I wish to thank  Mentor Sacco for educating me on how to save, borrow and make wise investment decisions,” he said on the sidelines of the members information day at Kikuyu  Township Primary School.

Elijah Thuo.

ELIJAH THUO: YOUNG, AMBITIOUS AND TALENTED

Calm  and  collected,  Elijah Thuo teaches at North Highridge Primary, sixth Parklands Avenue in Nairobi county.  “ Before I joined Mentor Sacco   in 2023,  I conducted a comprehensive research  in Kenya’s financial industry and I found out that savings and credit co-operative societies ( Saccos) are very ideal vehicles for investments,”  he said. “ I then narrowed down my research to the leading Saccos in Kenya, and I picked Mentor,” he added. 

That decision was wise.  “  The  Sacco has  fully   financed my studies at the Kenya Institute of  Special Education ( KISE),”  he said. “ I also earned dividends on my share capital and interest on my ordinary deposits at the end of the  Sacco’s 2023 financial year,” he added.

Thuo is  planning to purchase  a plot   and   put up a residential house in the next six years.  “ To achieve that goal, I will religiously  save with my Sacco every month so that I can access a reasonable loan,” he optimistically said. He added that there are five teachers at                              
 North  Highridge Primary School who are members of Mentors and hence getting guarantors when one is need of a loan is not a challenge.
