A Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture & Technology student has innovated a digital system to boost SACCO operations.

Patrick Kaberia, a student who doubles up as an employee at the institution said his innovation will digitalise Sacco operations.

He said his software innovation " SACCONET" , will provide solutions to the wasted spent by members visiting Sacco offices.

Kaberia said Saccos face difficulties in providing services to their members due to inaccessibility.

"Saccos are situated in specific geographical locations, their members are very mobile and need to go digital," he said.

Kaberia said his inovation was motivated by Sacco working hours which coincide with members working hours.

He said the new system offers a solution to challenges facing Sacco by integrating web and a mobile applications to facilitate online business.

Kaberia displayed his innovation during the recent exhibition at the Central ASK shok in Nyeri.

Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua and Deputy President William Samoei Ruto praised him for the innovation.
