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

Nzuki's story

Nzuki lives in a small town outside of Magodi, in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, near the border of Tanzania. While beekeeping has not historically been a major activity in the region, the mangrove swamps closer to the coast and large passionfruit farms inland provide bees with robust sources of nectar. Though most farmers in the area are new to beekeeping, many are very enthusiastic about keeping bees.

Nzuki is married, and has seven children. His wife is retired, while he tends to their land. He has been farming for fifty-two years, and is currently tending to an orange orchard. He is looking forward to working with Honey Care because they give “personalized service” to his beehives, and the bees will help pollinate his crops.

This is Nzuki’s first loan, and he plans to use the income generated from his beehives to start a tree plantation on his land. In the future, Nzuki hopes to continue farming, and start introducing new commercial crops.
