There are a total of 17 active diaspora SACCOS. The Kenya USA Diaspora Sacco was the first one to be registered in 2012.
Kenyans in the diaspora have a huge impact back home not just through remittances but also through the ideas and developments that they are implementing back in Kenya.
The national government holds the diaspora community in high regard thanks to their excellent remittance schemes.
