Who We Are

Its membership consists of over 20,000 registered Co-operatives drawn from: National Co-operative Organizations (NACOs), Co-operative Unions (County Unions, formerly called district coop Unions) and Primary Co-operative Societies. Membership is dominated by Savings and Credit societies, referred as SACCOs.  The individual Co-operative members to these Co-operatives are over 14 million with mobilized savings of over Kshs. 650 billion or 30% of the National Savings. Those employed in the sector are over 555,000 persons.
CAK’s primary role is that of lobby and advocacy for a favorable legal and policy environment. In addition, CAK has the role of collaboration, networking, representation and the promotion of the growth and development of the Co-operative Movement.
