The young businessman bought a set of protective gear on the money he earned

Andrew had a hard life as a child. He recalls: “My father passed on when I was in Primary Four, but I had a dream of becoming a great bee keeper. My teachers gave a hand and pushed me up to Primary Seven. That is when my life started getting difficult.”

“I enrolled for a study trip to Nairobi, Kenya and became one of the best students and got a bee hive and a training certificate,” Andrew said.

He bought two bee hives with what little money he had and began the process. In just five months he was already harvesting the fruit of his labor. He said: “At first I got only one liter of honey which I sold at GHC30, but that didn’t demoralize me. It instead gave me hope of getting more.”

Today he gets up to three liters of honey every three months of harvest. On the money he earned Andrew acquired his own protective gear and a motorcycle.
