A loan of $550 helped to buy tea tree seedlings.

Zachary's story

Zachary lives in the Nanyuki area of Central province, Kenya. He owns a tea tree farming business. He started the business from the income he earned doing subsistence farming. The extract from tea tree is used to manufacture cosmetics. He began the business of tea tree farming this year.

He learned about Milango through an employee who invited him to the group and he joined the group with the aim of accessing credit. The main challenge in the area has been the seasonal weather. This he believes will be sorted once he purchases a water pump.

Zachary is applying for a loan of 47,007 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for the business. His extra income from the loan will be added to the savings and he looks forward to establishing the farm by increasing the acreage.
