The cooperation is an accredited member of NACFISA.
As we come to the end of 2017, allow me to take a moment to express my gratitude to you and your families for continued partnership and support unto our dearest initiative, the creation of African Shepherds Primary Cooperative Limited.
As if it was a mere coincidence of dates, our Cooperative was registered on the seventh day of the seventh month of twenty-seventeen (07-07-2017). Number 7 appears more than once and this is of great significance from a biblical perspective. This number is linked to “perfection” or “completeness”. Without expanding too much in the meaning of these words, I am proud of what we have achieved so far and what we are about to achieve before we celebrate our first year of existence and convene our first annual general meeting during the second half of 2018. I am confident that our members will diligently ensure that the cooperative meet the regulatory requirements for our recognition as a financial institution that will provide for members’ financial independence. We are committed to continue signing in new members and increasing our financial contributions for mutual benefits so we can all thrive during these changing times. I fully agree with Abraham Lincoln who said, “the best way to predict [our] future is to create it”. Creating the future we want is not an easy task. It is a mission that comes with challenges. These are challenges that the Board is determined to face regardless of political or economic circumstances. If we work together, we will do great things!
I wish you all healthy, happy and successful year 2018.
May God Almighty bless you and your family.
