While on the same focus, the co-operative model has been a major boost to this approach, and over the year, the County Government of Nandi through the department of Agriculture and Co-operative development has been able to engage with members of a society to create co-operative societies in a quest to benefit and increase their margins of resource turn over.

On Friday, a newly registered savings and credit cooperative society, LYMO INUKA received its certificate of incorporation.  LYMYO INUKA comprises largely of parents from Kokwet area in Mosoriot who came together to ensure the education of their children is completed successfully. The group after sensitization from the co-operative development office opted to graduate its previous membership as a self-help group to form a SACCO. This is in regards to the immense benefits a SACCO has especially with its credit access facility which is a key interest to the members of LYMYO INUKA.
