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


Harrison's story

Harrison 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 concentration of farms in the area, which provide bees with a variety of foliage.

Harrison is married and has seven children. He has been farming for 25 years and is currently growing maize, beans, sweet potatoes, cassava, and vegetables on his land. He is looking forward to becoming a beekeeper because "it is well paid, and the bees take care of themselves."

This is Harrison's first loan, and he plans to use the income generated from his hives to feed his family and pay his children's school fees. In the future, Harrison hopes to expand his land, so that his family has enough room to live on.
