A loan of $175 helped to buy beehives to supplement his income.

Andrea's story

Andrea lives in Kakamega county in western Kenya. He is a widower, and has been farming his land for over 40 years. He is currently growing maize, and is happy that Honey Care will provide free services for his beehives, which he describes as a good source of income. He and his wife had 10 children, who themselves now have children, and he plans to use the proceeds from his hives to help pay his grandchildren's school fees. He hopes one day to live a better life with his grandchildren.
