Fawzia, received five beehives through MCC’s and the ZSVP project in February 2015 and now has 16 hives. As her hives multiplied, she not only gave the required two hives back to ZSVP but also, on her own, gave eight more directly to other farmers in her community. The local core staff – (teachers, engineers and an agriculture professor at a local university) – knew the quality and taste of honey produced in the country was once famous And that people were willing to pay a premium for local honey. That knowledge paid off. After receiving the beehives and hands-on training through ZSVP and MCC, Fawzia now produces honey that she is able to sell for five times the cost of imported honey in local stores. Exactly how much? She is charging $22 for 16 ounces – while mass-market honey costs about $5 an ounce.
