To stress it’s financial strength, Unaitas posted 65% growth in comprehensive income from KShs 244 million in 2016 to KShs 403.7 million in the financial year ended December 2017. The profits grew 27% to KShs 338 million. Since it’s inception, the society has never posted a loss. Alongside this solid performance, the board of directors proposed a dividend of 9% on investment shares, which was an increase from the 7% that was paid in the previous financial year.

According to Unaitas chairman Joseph Ngaai Kabugu, plans to transform Unaitas into a commercial bank and listing its shares at the Nairobi Stock Exchange are on course and this will translate into more benefits for members.

The Unaitas Kisumu branch is located at Unaitas Plaza opposite Kibuye Market along the Kisumu Kakamega Highway. This branch is strategically located to serve Nyanza and the Western regions.
