A Rwandan’s Story: Increasing Potato Farming Revenue with the Beehive

online and mobile content

Sosthene is 24 years old and is originally from Gitarama in the south of Rwanda but he works in Ruhengeri in the north of the country. He is a farmer/businessman by trade.

Sosthene found out about the Rwanda Beehive while searching for information on agriculture on Google.com. In addition to finding information about advanced methods of potato growing, Sosthene used the Rwanda Beehive to learn how to start and manage a small business. The Beehive guided Sosthene through the process of obtaining a small business loan from the bank. This loan enabled  him to start his business. He also followed the Beehive’s step-by-step guide to potato growing, and as a result, he has had great yields this year. He now makes a good living from his business, and he attributes much of his success to the information that he learned on the Beehive.
