    paying

    What does the following in red mean in the context?

    Sullivan's experiment is not yet a proven success. He hasn't reached his target of $900,000 at the time of writing and even if he hits it, that figure is still only paying for a small team.

    Is this saying "that figure is as little as the amount that can be given just to a small team (maybe as their salaries)"?

    Thank you.

    Re: paying

    Yes. '...only paying for a small team' means '...only enough to pay for a small team'.
