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

Eglay's story

Eglay lives in Kakamega. Kakamega County is located in Western Kenya and is famous for its rain forest. Many farmers in the area grow maize, sugar cane and bananas, with maize being the primary crop. The density of the old growth trees in the Kakamega forest, and the variety of crops grown in the area, make this an excellent area for beekeeping.

Eglay is married and has six children. Both she and her husband are farmers. They have been farming for twelve years now and they are currently growing maize and bananas. They also practice dairy and poultry farming and beekeeping. Eglay is excited about beekeeping as it will earn her some income and provide her with honey for both food and medicine.

This is Eglay's first loan with Honey Care and she plans to use the proceeds from her beehives to invest in her farm. Eglay's hope for the future is to live a comfortable life and own her own car.
