Welcome to Ushuru Sacco
Ushuru Savings and Credit Co-operative (Sacco) Limited was formed in 1970 by employees of the then Customs and Excise Department, Ministry of Finance, under the name of Customs & Excise Workers (CUEW) Sacco. At inception, its membership was limited to employees of the Customs Department, although those who were transferred from Customs to other Government Departments were allowed to retain their membership.
When Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) was formed in 1995, the CUEW Sacco By-laws, in force at the time, did not allow recruitment of members outside the common bond. This necessitated changes to the By-laws in order to allow membership from other Government Ministries and Parastatals. In 2002, the CUEW Sacco changed its name to USHURU Sacco Limited to reflect the new all-inclusive membership that now consisted of KRA employees.
USHURU SACCO has over 4,300 members as At January 2014, Members comprise of employees of Kenya Revenue Authority, National Hospital Insurance Fund, Kenya Literature Bureau, PZ Cussons, Kenya Airports Authority, East Africa Safaris, Fly 540 Aviation Limited, The Banda School, National Housing Corporation, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and Government Ministries.
