Some of the beehives distributed to farmers

Chairman of the farmers’ group Mr Gideon Dagunduro said part of the loan was used to construct the hives,with each farm getting three to four hives.

“Every month we will go to each farmer’s farm and look at the progress,” he said.

A & Shine International (a honey processing company) is working with the farmers as an off-taker and provides technical support to the farmers to enable them achieve maximum productivity.

The leadership of the company led by Mr and Mrs Bukola Adeshina said they were working with the farmers to ensure best practices in production for maximum results.

About 75 beekeepers,including 25 women who benefited from the loan, received the hives.
