Shea nuts collected in the southern zone of Sassa Mbersi

This field mission made it possible to locate the exploitable shea park, to collect a sample of butter for laboratory analysis and to identify the potential future members of the cooperative.

Concerning beekeeping, the potential for bee production is real, the local demand for the activity and for honey is great, and the population is very interested and motivated by the project. Pilot hives have been installed and a first training session is planned for October 2020 for a first harvest in April 2021 !
