A loan of $975 helped a member to purchase tea seedlings and fertilizers for plantation expansion.


Kigarama Kwetungura, Kihihi Group's story

As they say, determination is a key to success. B. Benon, a happily married father of six children, ventured into tea growing in Kigarama, Kihihi, twenty years ago. After realizing a readily available market in the area with a tea factory, he developed interest in growing and selling tea leaves alongside his farming business. This enterprise sees him earning about $41 a month which has had a great impact on his standard of living. His main problem is that his land is infertile and produces low yields. With this loan he is looking at buying fertilizer and manure as well as further expanding his tea plantation by buying more seedlings and planting on a large scale. This will improve his yields and his sales and enable him to take care of his family's needs.
