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

Paul's story

Paul 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.

Paul is married and has six children. He runs a transport business. Both he and his wife are farmers. They have been farming for 25 years now, and they are currently growing maize and vegetables and rearing livestock, as well as beekeeping. Paul is excited about beekeeping as it will earn him some income.

This is Paul's first loan with Honey Care, and he plans to use the proceeds from his beehives to improve the living standards of his family. Paul's hope for the future is to live a modern life.
