Edward's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy tea tree seedlings for the business and to plough the farm for planting.
Edward lives in the Nanyuki area of Central province, Kenya. He is married and has four children. He owns a tea tree farming business. He started the business from the income of subsistence farming where he also grows potatoes, maize, vegetables in small scale; this has run for eight years. The extract from tea tree is used to manufacture cosmetics. He learned about Milango through an employee who invited him to the group and he joined the group with an aim of accessing credit. The main challenges he faces are finding customers and seasonal weather. Edward is applying for a loan of 31,450 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for the business and to plough the farm for potato growing too. His extra income from the loan will be added to the savings to establish large scale farming.
