UNITY CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY (UNICS) opened her doors on the 15th of January 2000 as a Category 1 Microfinance Institution with a single Branch around the Central Market in Yaoundé with thirty (30) Pioneer Shareholders and a handful of Members. As the vision of the shareholders changed overtime, UNICS Plc. moved from a Co-operative Society to a Category 1 Microfinance Institution in 2003.
