A loan of $300 helped to buy beehives to supplement his income.

Ndegwa's story

Ndegwa lives in a town called Mwanduda, in the Kwale province of eastern Kenya. He is married with four children, and he and his wife have been farming for 35 years. He is currently growing citrus plants, as well as jatropha, a hardy shrub with seeds that are currently being used to make biodiesel.

This is his first Kiva loan, and he plans to use the income generated from the beehives he will buy to help pay for school fees. One day, Ndegwa hopes to start a horticulture farm on his land.
