|Danson Kithinji: How I make Sh. 600,000 from selling beehives in Kenya by Kenyans247(m): Mon Sep 2019 09:20am|
Beehives in Kenya: Having lived in the city for eight years, Danson Kithinji never thought that he would, one day, return to the village to farm. But the 2007/08 post-election violence forced him out of Nairobi city to his rural home in Kavutiri village, Manyatta constituency, Embu County.
“I returned home and decided to try my hand in bee keeping. I had some experience in this because the relative I was living with in Nairobi’s Kawangware was doing it,” he says. In 2009, he established Nyukiz Care Services project a journey, which was filled with various ups and downs before he finally became a respected bee farmer in the area. “Starting was not bad because I had some experience. I had done bee keeping for the years while I lived in Nairobi. I knew the tricks of the game. But my focus was making and selling bee hives,” he says.
Kithinji used his Sh5,000 savings to buy timber, which he used to construct five bee hives. “I went round my neighbourhood and managed to sell all of them making Sh25,000. I bought more timber and built 15 hives, but it was not easy selling them. It took some time before I sold all of them,” says the farmer.
