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

George's story

George lives in a small town near Sagalato 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.

George is married, and has four children. Both he and his wife have been farming for twenty-three years, and are currently growing maize and mangoes on their land. George is looking forward to working with Honey Care because they give "efficient and personalized service." He is also excited to start beekeeping because it will give him a source of natural honey for medicinal use.

This is George's first loan, and he plans to use the income generated from his beehives to start goat farming. George's hope for the future is to grow his apiary, eventually to 100 beehives!
