Dignity Loan Program: Beekeeping sisters

Feb 29, 2016

When sisters Wejdan and Anaam received a a dignity loan from the Order of Malta to become beekeepers, they had no idea they would become successful so fast. Their business has been growing rapidly, and they have now expanded their bee farming operation into 16 boxes of beehives in just four months.The beehives can be harvested up to two times per year, and each box gives the sisters about 10kg of honey per harvest. 

 

They were happy and proud to show us around their small bee farm on our recent visit, which their whole family in now involved in. When we asked if we could buy some honey from them, they told us that they were completely sold out. In fact, they added, demand for their honey has been consistently, exceptionally high since they started selling. One of their sons has also seized the opportunity to move back to Palestine to join the family business, but he has been living in Europe for 12 years working as an engineer.
