Your profile as an entrepreneur

Tshepiso Marumo is from Metlobo village in Southern district of Botswana. I am 31 years of age. I currently hold an honors degree in Business with Anglia Rusking University and pursuing masters in business administration.Tshepiso is an author, a motivational speak and a youth ambassador and an accredited trainer. Tshepiso is a director of Tshepi beekeeping t/a The zone 4 life group of company. One day, I was researching on internet and I remembered the bees story that was in the article. I started to make a deep research about beekeeping. I was impressed by what I saw in the internet. I decided that I will do beekeeping as an alternative source of income for my family. I went to Ministry of Agriculture and inquire more information about beekeeping. Fortunately they offered me a course in beekeeping. I got registered with institutions such as the business place for business training courses and the business clinic for an exposure. I had challenges; I had an idea but had no funds or land. When I started my project my family was not interested in this idea of bees, but wanted me to focus in my study so that I get a good job. I was a University student. I started ways of generating funds for my idea. So I started to save some of my monthly allowances in one of the banks and invest in stock markets to raise funds for my project.

Thank you so much i will keep it up...We are promoting beekeeping amongst the youth to venture in honey production and conserve the bees as they play a huge role in our ecosystem...Though we have limited resources to do so but we believe we will get there..

Good work Tshepi Beekeepers
I am happy that you are offering internships as well as making honey juice. If indeed bee keeping is rare in your country, you should come out even stronger. Honey is known for its numerous home remedies apart from its nutritive content. Good work!
