Credit risk management is the practice of mitigating losses by understanding the adequacy of a bank’s capital and loan loss reserves at any given time. To comply with the more stringent regulatory requirements and absorb the higher capital costs for credit risk, Saccos are overhauling their approaches to credit risk. Saccos are struggling to increase their credit recovery and reduce bad debt. Prior studies have been carried out on this area but there have been mixed results on risk avoidance strategy, risk transfer strategy, risk reduction strategy and risk retention strategy. The current study intends to determine the effect of credit risk management strategies on credit recovery in Saccos, a case of Stima Sacco Kisumu. The specific objectives of the study will be to determine the effect of risk avoidance strategy on credit recovery in Stima SACCO Kisumu, to establish the effect of risk transfer strategy on credit recovery in Stima SACCO Kisumu, to assess the effect of risk reduction strategy on credit recovery in Stima SACCO Kisumu, and to investigate the effect of risk retention strategy on credit recovery in Stima SACCO Kisumu.
