When Agushi was contacted about his project, he said that it was going well, and that despite obstacles and setbacks, the goal of providing a sustainable source of income for was proving to be quite successful. He said: “Honey is a realistic commodity to produce. It can be easily stored and will not go bad or spoil shortly after being harvested, making transporting and selling it almost effortless. Selling byproducts, like wax, can also increase a business family’s income as a result of it being used in candles and soap which are then sold to the public”.
