The employees working with the Stima Sacco Society in Kenya constituted the target population. Stratified random sampling method was adopted to draw the 59 sampled respondents from the study population. A structured questionnaire was employed to collect data.

Descriptive statistics took the form of frequencies, percentages, means and standard deviations. Inferential statistics were in the form of correlation and regression analyses.
