What is this project all about?
Only a few kilometres away from Bihac, in the north-west of Bosnia, I own a small lot of land with many types of fruit trees ( Appletrees, Cherrytrees, Peartrees, etc.). The area of the property is of 1800m2 and it lies just 200 m away from the forest.
What I would like to do, is start a small beekeeping business there, where I plan to produce honey and a variety of natural products, like propolis, pollen and beeswax.
Given that I work as a small farmer and day laborer, I need your help to start this small business. In exchange, you will get delicious biological honey, you will help protect the environment and conserve the diversity of plant species and you will greatly help to improve my personal life circumstances.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
The goal of this project is to make my love for nature and honey into an honest, ecologically sustainable work. On the long term, selling honey products is going to provide a small income, that will allow me to remain in my home country and live in nature.
My plan should address people, who like biological, ecologically sustainable products. Every lover of nature or adventure is welcome on my land, can sleep there and even help with the honey production.
Why would you support this project?
1. Because you will contribute to the protect the
environment/conserve the diversity of plant species
2.Because you will get delicious biological honey, from a trustworthy source.
3. Because, with your small contribution, you will hugely improve my life circumstances. By means of this website's blog, I will keep you posted on the development of the business and on how this opportunity, that you have given to me, has impacted my life.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
If the project will be funded, I will buy swarms of bees,
beehives, beekeepers clothes, a honey extractor and other utensils.
The price for all these objects will be approx. 1500 euro, spread
* 10 swarms of bees and beehives, 110 each -> 1100 Euro
* Utensils totally approx. 400 Euro
Who are the people behind the project?
My name is Mustafa Kajevic and I am 51 years old. I originally
come from Serbia. During the war I went to Bosnia &
Herzegovina, to try to start a secure future there. Due to
financial reasons, I went to Koblenz, in Germany, during the 2000
years, where I worked for a glass producing company.
I saved money, bought a lot of land in Bihac(where I would like to start beekeeping now) and, over time, started building a house. From the time I stopped working at the company in Koblenz, I started going to Munich regularly, and worked there as a day laborer. With increasing age, I don't find it as easy anymore, to work in these precarious conditions. This is why I want to start a line of work in my village, that will be beneficial both to me and to the environment.
Also behind the project are Arni Tol. and Luciana O. . We are social workers in a counselling centre for migrants in Munich. We trust Mustafa greatly and we believe, that he will be successful in accomplishing his plan. This is why we have given him our support, by helping him write this crowd-funding campaign.
