A loan of $750 helped to buy tea tree seedlings for the business.

Charles's story

Charles lives in the Nanyuki area of Central Province, Kenya. He owns a tea tree farming business. He started the business from the income of 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 an aim of accessing credit. The main challenge in the area has been the seasonal weather. He believes this will be sorted once he purchases a water pump.

Charles is applying for a loan of 62,650 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for the business. His extra income from the loan will be added to his savings.

He looks forward to establishing the farming by increasing the acreage.
