A loan of $4,950 helped a member to cultivate her own tea plantation.


Kanoni Tweyambe Group Of Kihihi's story

As it appears, A. Annet has gotten into a “leaps and bounds” business stride selling tea leaves. What has been even more outstanding is the fact that her business only took root one year ago in Kanoni, Kihihi district. She is an entrepreneurial woman with a determined business sense of purpose, intent on setting her own trends.

Annet’s story seems to be an exception to that stereotypical societal rule that has for long held that women hardly succeed in her kind of business. At 29 years old, she seemingly is on the right track. With her monthly profits of 250,000 shillings, this hardworking woman has been able to reach a satisfactory rate in her business operations. Her six children all go to school and her family’s welfare has improved.

Annet’s main drawback has been the inconsistency and unreliability of her suppliers. On several occasions, she has had to make do with less supplies, yet she was inundated with enormous customer demands. With this in mind, she has drawn up plans whereby she wants to cultivate her own tea plantations to be able to redress this discrepancy in her line of work. In her own estimation, this loan will be her tower of support as she drives her dream.

In this group: Annet, Harry, Peace, Benon, Cosmos, Onesmus, Patrick, Medad, Godfrey, Elifaz, Edson, Phiona, Thomas, Onesmus, Richard, Esther, Benson, Warren, Kedison, Kelleb, Robert, Tanazio, Alaso
