The National Association of SACCOs in Tanzania (SCCULT) was revived in the year 2017 through the support of Improving Rural Financial Inclusion through Cooperative (IRFTCO) project which is funded by IFAD and it’s being implemented by ACCOSCA.
An interim board was nominated by the registrar of cooperatives to transition the Apex until the first Annual General meeting. The new board members were elected in October 2018 during the first Annual General meeting to guide the operations of the Association. Through the support of the project, a 3-year strategic plan was developed for the Association to guide its business. This was implemented from January 2019 and up to December 2019, it will be 1 year old.
ACCOSCA jointly with Canadian Co-operative Development Foundation (CDF-The Lead Agency) and Irish league of Credit Union Foundation (ILCUF) is implementing a project entitled “Improving Rural financial inclusion through Financial Co-operatives.” as supported by IFAD in Tanzania, Malawi and Ethiopia.

I. Building the technical capacity of financial co-operatives and their network organization
II. Introducing innovation to financial co-operatives and their network organization.

These Terms of Reference (ToR) are in line with the 3 components as mentioned above.
