Kakamega county is in Western Kenya, on the border to Uganda. The provincial capital, Kakamega, is small but the region has a very high population density, and is second only to Nairobi in terms of population size. The equator runs through the green landscape, and it has an average elevation above sea level of 1,535 m. The population lives on agriculture, and are subsistence farmers. The average income is low, but relatively steady since the land is very fertile, and there are many growing seasons.
