A loan of $450 helped to buy tea tree seedlings for his business.


Stanley's story

Stanley lives in Nanyuki area of Central province, Kenya. He is married and has three children.

He owns a tea tree farming business. He started the business from the income of subsistence farming. He also grows potatoes, maize, and vegetables in small scale. 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 with an aim of accessing credit. The main challenges he faces are finding customers and seasonal weather. This he believes will be sorted once he purchases a water pump.

Stanley is applying for a loan of KES 36,700 to buy tea tree seedlings for the business. His extra income from the loan will be added to the savings to pay for his children’s school fees.

His future plan in five years' time is to do large-scale farming and open butchery.
