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

Joseph's story

Joseph lives in Maphombe, a small town in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, and is the southernmost Kenyan county. Though some of the towns along the beach see benefits from tourism, the majority of people living inland are farmers, and the region's inconsistent rains can make agricultural yields unpredictable. Beekeeping is a relatively new activity in the area, but many farmers here are enthusiastic at the prospect of owning their own hives.

Joseph is married and has two children. Both he and his wife have been farming for 20 years and they are currently tending an orange orchard. Joseph is excited to work with Honey Care Africa because they have “very prompt service.” He is also interested in beekeeping because of the prospect of making his own honey, which he likes because of its medicinal benefits.

This is Joseph’s first loan and he plans to use the income generated from his hives to repair his leaking roof. In the future, Joseph hopes to build himself a new home.
