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

Miriam's story

Miriam lives in Kidzumbani, a small town in Kwale County. Kwale county is located on the Kenyan coast, and borders Tanzania to the south. Inconsistent rainfalls make farming difficult and contribute to the area's high poverty rates. Despite the unreliable rainfall, bees in the region have two excellent sources of food: wild mangrove forest and local passion fruit plantations. Beekeeping is relatively new to the area, but many farmers are very interested in owning hives.

Miriam is married and has one child. Both she and her husband are farmers. They are currently growing a Casurina tree plantation in their farm. Miriam is excited about beekeeping as it is a good source of honey for domestic use.

This is Miriam’s first loan with Honey Care. She is interested in working with Honey Care because they have very professional service. She intends to use the proceeds generated from her beekeeping to pay for her college fees. Miriam’s hope for the future is to establish a commercial apiary.
