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

Khalfan's story

Khalfan lives in a small town in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, near Tanzania. Inconsistent rains, especially recently, have made farming difficult, and the poverty rates in the county are above the Kenyan average.

Beekeeping is somewhat new to Kwale, but the passion fruit farms and mangrove forests throughout the area provide excellent sources of nectar for bee colonies. Many farmers in the area have expressed excitement at the prospect of owning their own hives and having a second source of income from their honey to help care for their families.

Khalfan is married and has six children. Both he and his wife are farmers and are currently growing mangoes on their land. He is looking forward to beekeeping because he loves to eat honey and he is excited to start working with Honey Care Africa because their hive technicians give good service on beehives.

This is Khalfan's first loan and he plans to use the income generated from his beehives to help make some improvements to his house. In the future, Khalfan hopes to save up enough money to start a tree plantation on his land.
