A loan of $350 helped to buy beehives and apiary materials for honey production.


Sandra's story

Sandra lives in a small town in Kwale county. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, and it 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.

Sandra is single and has no children. She is currently tending to tree plantations on her land, and has been farming for three years. Sandra likes beekeeping because it will give her a source of honey for home use, and because it provides a good income.

This is Sandra's first loan with Honey Care, and she plans to use the income generated by her beehives to start a small restaurant business. Sandra's hope for the future is to expand her business into catering for groups and events.
