Providing recommendations for improvements to internal controls, operational processes, and risk management practices.

Performing regular audits of financial statements, loan portfolios, member accounts, and other critical areas to detect errors, fraud, or irregularities.

 Monitoring and reviewing key risk indicators to ensure early detection of emerging risks and timely response mechanisms.

Conducting risk assessments for new products, services, or business initiatives to evaluate their potential impact on the Sacco’s risk profile.
