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


Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel lives in Butere, a small town in Kakamega county. Kakamega county is located in Western Kenya, close to the Ugandan border. It contains the only tropical rain forest in Kenya, and the variety of the flora in the region makes it well suited for beekeeping. It has one of the highest rural population densities in the world (in some areas, close to 600 people per square kilometer), which may contribute to the region's high poverty rates.

Emmanuel is single, and has been farming for three years. He is currently growing bananas on his land, but plans to use the income from his hives to expand into poultry production.

He is excited to start beekeeping because it is a profitable activity, and is looking forward to working with Honey Care because he trusts the Hive Technicians to visit his farm regularly and do good work servicing his hives.

In the future, Emmanuel hopes to expand his farming activities, and live a comfortable life.
