Bernard's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase hive components and accessories to produce quality honey.

Bernard's story

Bernard started bees when he was 21 years old. At that time, he used to do that in the tree trunks. Last year, after receiving an extensive training on beekeeping, he decided he would like to introduce modern equipment in his activity.

That is why he is now looking for a loan to purchase hives components and accessories to produce quality honey. Bernard already made contact with some local buyers to sell the honey and the beeswax. He hopes to become a great rural entrepreneur.
