One principle of co-operatives is Education, training and information; they provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so that they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operative. They train members on financial management.

In conclusion, they are now regulated by SASRA which means members savings are in safe hands unlike previously.
