A loan of $275 helped to buy tea tree seedlings for her business.


Lewa's story

Lewa lives in the Nanyuki area of Central Province, Kenya. She is married and has four children. She owns a tea tree business. She started the business with her own savings. Besides this, she also plants beans, maize and potatoes.

She learned about Milango through a friend who invited her to the group, and she joined the group with an aim of accessing credit. The main challenges she faces are seasonal weather and finding customers.

Lewa is applying for a loan of 23,155 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for her business. Her extra income from the loan will be added to the savings to expand the business into a larger acreage for tea trees. Her future plan in five years time is to improve the living standards of her family.
