A loan of $250 helped to buy beehives for honey production.

David's story

David lives outside of Kakamega town, in Kakamega county. 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 the concentration of farms in the area, which provide bees with a variety of forage.

David is married, and has four children. He has been farming for four years, and is currently growing maize, sugar cane and vegetables on his land. He likes beekeeping, because it is an easily manageable activity and Honey Care guarantees a market for the honey his hives make.

This is David's first loan, and he says the income gathered from his hives "will help me to educate my children and feed my family." In the future, David hopes to save up enough money to expand to "a big farm."
