A loan of $300 helped to buy beehives for honey production.


Samuel's story

Samuel lives in Magondi, in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, near Tanzania. Inconsistent rains, especially recently, have made farming difficult and the poverty rates in the county are above the Kenyan average. Beekeeping is somewhat new to Kwale, but the passionfruit farms and mangrove forests throughout the area provide excellent sources of nectar for bee colonies. Many farmers in the area have expressed excitement at the prospect of owning their own hives and having a second source of income from their honey to help care for their families.

Samuel is married and has nine children. He has been farming for 50 years and is currently growing cashew nuts. He is excited to work with Honey Care Africa because they handle hive inspections and harvesting so he doesn't have to get stung by bees. This is Samuel's first loan and he hopes to use the income generated from his hives to help build a new house.
