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


Henry's story

Henry lives outside of Kakamega town, in Kakamega county. Kakamega county is located in Western Kenya and is famous for its rainforest. Many farmers in the area grow maize, sugarcane and bananas, with maize being the primary crop. The density of the old growth trees in the Kakamega forest and the variety of crops grown in the area make this an excellent area for beekeeping.

Henry is married and has seven children. Both he and his wife have been farming for thirteen years, and are currently growing beans, maize and sweet potatoes. Henry is excited to work with Honey Care because they conduct hive inspections every month.

This is Henry's first loan, and he plans to use the income generated from his hives to help provide the basic needs of his family, including food, clothing and school fees. In the future, Henry hopes to "buy a big farm and do more farming."
