A loan of $175 helped to buy beehives for honey production.


Severene's story

Severene lives close to Kakamega town, in Kakamega county. Kakamega county is located in Western Kenya and is famous for having the only tropical rain forest in the country. Most farmers in Kakamega grow maize, but sugarcane, papaya, bananas and tea are also popular crops. The variety of crops grown in the region, as well as the abundance of vegetation in the old growth forest, make Kakamega particularly attractive for beekeeping.

Severene is married and has three children. His wife runs a small business while he is a farmer. He has been farming for seven years and he is currently growing maize and vegetables on his farm. Severene is looking forward to beekeeping because it will provide him with honey for medicinal use.

This is Severene’s first loan with Honey Care. He plans to use the proceeds from his beehives to start his own business and buy land. Severene’s hope for the future is to have his children finish school.
