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

Francis's story

Francis lives in a small town in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, and is the southernmost Kenyan county. Though some of the towns along the beach see benefits from tourism, the majority of people living inland are farmers, and the region's inconsistent rains can make agricultural yields unpredictable. Beekeeping is a relatively new activity in the area, but many farmers here are enthusiastic at the prospect of owning their own hives.

Francis is married, and has one child. Both him and his wife have been farming for eight years, and are currently growing maize and mangoes on their land. Francis is excited to start beekeeping because he wants to eat some of the honey produced by his own hives.

This is Francis' first loan, and he plans to use the income generated by his hives to pay for his child's school fees. In the future, Francis hopes to save up enough money to start up a transportation business.
