Suban is a very hardworking man. He works hard because he wants his three children to be better off than he is. Only it is not easy, because the family does not own any farmland. They have had to rent land for years - their only possibility to grow maize. Maize is the main source of food for the Chepang here.
Suban was looking for alternatives to generate income.
As our bee project became better known, Suban also became more concerned with the idea of keeping bee colonies himself. He had been passionate about beekeeping for a long time.
In 2015, he took the first step.
He started with 10 beehives, which he financed with the help of our microcredit system. Later, 5 more beehives followed through LiScha, as well as a beekeeper training course.
Suban is very successful with beekeeping. If you visit him at home today, you can see beehives everywhere. The initial 10 bee colonies have now grown to 53. Suban hopes to produce about 1,200 kg of honey from this year's harvest. He plans to sell a large part of it, because honey sales are the family's annual income. Suban calculates: it could be a total of 2,000 €.
The sum makes him breathe a sigh of relief. It is a great success of which he is visibly proud.
Helping people to help themselves - a concept that works and you can be part of it and help people like Suban directly and sustainably!
