Initial Draft






























Thank you for purchasing the FinFinancials system.

This product has been developed after extensive research on Saccos both in Kenya and Sub-Saharan Africa. The main Features of this system include

  • Cash/Cheques Management module
  • FOSA Module
  • BOSA Module
  • Accounts Module (Integrated, Real-Time Posting)
  • Branchless Operations Module


Cash/Cheque Management Module
This module is responsible for receiving all cash and cash equivalent into the system. It mainly runs under the domain of the Tellers and the Chief Cashier. Tellers can receive cash, pay cash, receive cheques, encash cheques, receive loan and share payments in cash, Direct Debits, Cheque Preparation Module, chief teller’s transactions module. The system can support an infinite number of tellers working simultaneously. The system also supports online authorizations of transactions to enhance security.

FOSA Module

This module is responsible for handling all transactions relating to front office that do not directly involve cash movement. Sub modules under this module include fixed deposits module, standing orders module, Auxiliary balances management, group accounts management, dormant account management module, Non-cash ledger transactions module and authorization management.

Fixed deposits module manages call deposits that a Sacco may have for corporate and individual members. Standing orders module manages standing order instructions. Auxiliary balances module ensures that member’s deposits balances are taken correctly during the year and thus interest awarded is fair. Journal Entries are passed in the Ledger transactions module.



BOSA Module

This module contains sub-modules that are responsible for loans registration, appraisal, approval and posting. These sub-modules have a wizard like feature which make is simpler for users to register, appraise, approve and post loans. Under the BOSA module, there is a module for managing shares and share variations. Interest management is also handled under the BOSA module.  The system supports separate accounts for loan balances and interest balances so that interest is not charged on interest. Fin-Sacco also features an optional file movement module to manage file movement where there are loan application backlogs.

Accounts Module
Fin-Sacco features an integrated GL System that generally handles all the Sacco transactions. The GL is integrated and interfaced with cash services module, FOSA and BOSA module. FinFinancials also offers an optional feature to upload daily transactions to a conventional and independent ledger module (Offered as a module within LeasePAC). Transactions are updated real time and it is technically possible to tell the position of the Sacco at any point in time during the day/month.


WEB Enquiry Module

The system has a WEB interface that allows for members within the intranet to access their account balance and statements information via a browser. Members also get information regarding the status of their guarantor-ship. This is expected to reduce the number of enquiries that members make. When Completed, Clients will be also be able to submit loan application forms online. This information will later be vetted against the manual form for conformity.

System Security

Security plays an important role in any Financial System. FinFinancials has implemented security at three levels; at the database level, at Windows level and at application Level. This ensures that the Sacco’s information is well guarded against malicious and accidental damage. Fintech greatly values security of its client business. There is a separate security module implemented with high levels of validation. The features of the security module include profiles, assignment of access levels, system security audit trail, monitoring of user accesses as well as Windows authentication and reporting of illegal access.

SMS Banking

The SMS banking module of the system ensures that clients get timely updates on the status of their loans applications in addition to the notifications of loan, savings and shares accounts balances. This improves service delivery.

Branchless Operations
FinFinancials Comes with a distributed branch architecture that ensures members enjoy branchless operations thus improving on service delivery. All branches update their own transactions with copies being sent to head-office for reporting, validation and authentication.
