The administrators of Omoro Youth Boda Boda group badly want financial support for their struggling SACCO.

They are now requesting government through their area MP, Rt. Hon. Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah to link them to relevant ministries.

The SACCO members are comprised of boda-boda raiders and other small scale businessmen and women.
It [SACCO] offers saving and credit services to its members.

Registered in April 2008 with only 8 members, it now has over 100 registered members.

According to its official, members are allowed to borrow money to boost up their business with 10% interest rate.

Francis Oling, the vice chairperson of Omoro Youth Boda Boda SACCO says they are requesting their area Member of Parliament for Omoro constituency, Hon. Jacob Oulanyah to facilitate their SACCO with funds.

To Oling, he says this will help them to invest in assets like motorcycles to further boost their industry.

Oling also says their area Member of Parliament has pledged to deliver their request to finance minister soon.
