Jocelyn’s story

Jocelyn, aged 57 years old, is a rural entrepreneur who wants to invest in beekeeping. Previously, he was breeding animals in his little farm. After participating in a beekeeping training course offered by a local organization, he learned the techniques to get started in beekeeping.

He is now seeking a loan to buy modern hives, a beekeeping mask, a smoker, and some tools. Jocelyn thinks that this new business will allow him to earn more money to improve the living conditions of his five family members. He would like to maintain a solid relationship with Kiva lenders, as this represents a big opportunity for him.
