As proof of its excellent service delivery, Ahoyi.Africa Savings and Credit Cooperative was awarded a Certificate of Achievement in recognition of Business Excellence in the category of Best SACCO of the year 2020 at an SMEs graduation Indaba hosted by the Small and Medium Enterprise Corporation of Zimbabwe and graced by His Excellency President Emmerson Munangagwa in Gweru on 11 December 2020.
AhoyiAfrica started collecting member contributions in May 2020 although the idea of the SACCO had brewed for over 2 years. Ahoyi Africa is uncompromisingly built on strong governance structures which are pinned on the 7 principles of financial cooperatives as well as an establishment of 8 committees which are assisting the Management Board in executing its mandate.
Ahoyi Africa targets to invest in four sectors namely Agriculture, financial Services, Property and Commodity Trading. Through the www.ahoyiafrica.com online shop, the Ahoyi Africa is fulfilling the mandate to help capacitate its members who are in various means of production with a ready market through supplying goods to the shop. For example, members are supplying sugar beans, peanut butter or packed kapenta – gaining a market which most never had before.
