Thika Community Development Trust –TCDT- is a microfinance project (Christian development agent), established in 2004 and registered under Trust Deed in 2006 by the Anglican Diocese of Thika in Kenya.
Started in 2004, the project’s aim is to contribute to the efforts of poverty alleviation in the district. This is achieved by supporting Community led and Managed Savings and Loan Funds groups established along the diocesan parish structures at the grass roots level. The groups established are referred to as Trust Groups.
Fast growing Trust Groups are later converted into Financial Service Associations or Community ‘banks’ a model that is more superior and can accomodate large portfolios effectively. Community ‘banks’ are open all working days of the week. TCDT’s role is to source for funds and avail the same to the groups for capitalization, build capacity of the community to manage the FSAs, research and products development.
TCDT is in partnership with Five Talents International, who has in the years provided technical and financial support to the program.
To enhance the building of the kingdom of God in its wholeness by empowering the community savings mobilization, credit provision and capacity building, using efficient and effective coordination, to improve their social-economic status and win them for Christ.
To be the best community based micro finance institution in Kenya, founded and managed on Christian values.
