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

Malach's story

Malach lives outside of Butere, in Kakamega county. Kakamega county is located in Western Kenya, close to the Ugandan border. It contains the only tropical rain forest in Kenya, and the variety of the flora in the region makes it well-suited for beekeeping. It has one of the highest rural population densities in the world (in some areas, close to 600 people per square kilometer), which may contribute to the region's high poverty rates.

Malach, who is unmarried, has been farming for four years, currently growing vegetables of various types on his land. Malach is excited to work with Honey Care because they provide good services, and is looking forward to becoming a beekeeper because it is "a manageable project" that will not require too much of his time.

This is Malach's first loan, and he plans to use the income generated from his beehive to help him start a small business. In the future, he hopes to continue to grow the number and typse of projects he is engaged in, and to live a comfortable life.
