Benson's story

Benson is a farmer in the Nanyuki area of Central province, Kenya. He is a farmer mainly planting potatoes, maize, beans, etc. He intends to invest in tea-tree farming. The oil from this plant is used to manufacture cosmetics. He learned about Milango through a friend who invited him to the group, and he joined with an aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is the seasonal weather. Benson is applying a loan of 41,900 Kenya shillings to cultivate land and buy seeds, including tea-tree seedlings. His extra income will be added to his savings to improve the living standard of his family. He aspires to increase the acreage he has under tea-tree farming.
