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


Janet's story

Janet lives in the Nanyuki area of Central province, Kenya. She is a married mother of three children. She owns a tea tree farming business, a business which she has been operating for two years now. She also has an agricultural farm, dealing in maize, beans and potatoes in small scale.

She learnt about Milango through an employee who invited her to the group and she joined the group with an aim of accessing credit to better her business operations. The main challenge she faces is lack of water.

Janet is applying for a loan of 20,730 Kenya shillings to buy tea tree seedlings for the business. Her extra income from the loan will be added to the savings to expand the agricultural business. Her five year plan is to increase the acreage of tea trees to produce about 15 tons of tea per year.
