A loan of $325 helped to buy apiary materials and refurbished beehives for honey production.

Kassim's story

Kassim lives in a small town 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. Honey Care has offered farmers in the area a chance to purchase year-old beehives that have been repaired and re-waxed, and many individuals opted to buy these cheaper hives instead of new ones.

Kassim is single and has no children. He is a farmer and has been farming for six years now. He is currently growing maize and mangoes in his farm. Kassim is excited about beekeeping as it will be a source of honey for domestic use.

This is Kassim’s first loan with Honey Care. He intends to use the proceeds from his beehives to buy a motorcycle. Kassim’s hope for the future is to establish a commercial apiary.
