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


Elias's story

Elias lives in a farm outside of Kitale town.

Elias is married, and has five children. His wife works as a shopkeeper, while he farms their land. He has been farming for sixteen years, and is currently growing maize, beans and sunflowers. Elias is excited to start beekeeping because, “I will get pollination in my farm to increase yield and quality of my crops.”

This is Elias’ first loan with Honey Care and he plans to use the income generated by his beehives “for the purposes of school fees. I am creating an education fund for my children in [the form of] bee hives.”
