A loan of $200 helped to buy beehives for honey production.


Donald's story

Donald lives in Kakamega county with his wife and seven children. Kakamega is located in Western Kenya and is famous for the Kakamega Forest, the only tropical rain forest in Kenya. It is a very good location for beekeeping due to the old growth trees in the forest and concentration of farms in the area, which provide bees with a variety of forage.

Donald has been farming for eight years, and is currently growing bananas on his land. He is interested in working with Honey Care because they provide a guaranteed market for the honey his hives will produce. He is also excited to start beekeeping for two reasons: because honey is medicinal, and because he has always dreamt of doing beekeeping.

This is Donald's first loan, and he plans on using the income from his hives to help pay his children's school fees. When asked about his hopes and dreams for the future, Donald said that he would like "to be able to help the needy."
