Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to review financial performance of Kifanya SACCOS Limited, Tanzania, through its outreach and financial sustainability. Outreach was assessed by analyzing historical data on the number of clients who are offered financial services together with the growth of the working capital for the period starting with the year 2003 up to 2017. While financial sustainability was assessed by investigating the trend of loan borrowing and its repayment. Financial sustainability of the SACCOS through lending, was analysed using yearly data on loan borrowing and its repayment by computing the operational self-sufficiency (OSS) indices for the period starting 2004 through 2017.

Although the sustainability indexes has shown that there has been a positive trend showing that the SACCOS has moved toward gaining sustainability in its role of financial intermediation as the sustainability index grows towards 1.
