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

Fredrick's story

Frederick lives outside of Mabokoni, 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.

Frederick is married and has one child. His wife takes care of their home, while he farms and runs a small hardware business. He is currently growing a tree plantation on his land. He likes Honey Care because they give efficient service, and he is looking forward to becoming a beekeeper so he can have honey “for medicinal uses.”

This is Frederick’s first loan, and he plans to use the income generated by his beehives to expand his hardware business. In the future, Frederick hopes to educate his child to a high level.
