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

Daniel's story

Daniel lives in Kitale. Kitale is located in the Trans-Nzoia district of western Kenya, and at over 6,300 feet above sea level, is one of Africa’s most elevated towns. The rich soil of the area makes it one of the nation's biggest maize producing regions, lending it the nickname of “the breadbasket of Kenya.” Many farmers in the region have started projects planting bluegum trees on their land, which complement the region’s natural forests and provide bees with a variety of food sources. The people around Kitale have been beekeeping for centuries, and the area is dense with strong bee colonies.

Daniel is married and has four children. He is a teacher. Both he and his wife farm their land. They have been farming for 20 years now, and they are currently growing maize and rearing livestock on their farm. Daniel is excited about beekeeping, as the bees will help in pollinating their crops.

This is Daniel's first loan with Honey Care, and he intends to use the proceeds from his beehives to invest in beekeeping.

Daniel's hope for the future is to have a fulfilling life.
