A loan of $250 helped to buy tea tree seedlings for the farm.

Parayil's story

Parayil 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 trees is used to manufacture cosmetics. He began the business of tea tree farming this year.

He learnt 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. This he believes will be solved once he purchases a water pump.

Parayil is applying for a loan of 19,444 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for the farm. His extra income from the loan will be added to the savings and he looks forward to getting the returns once he starts harvesting.
