Rasmi Beekeeping Company (“Rasmi”) is a thriving beekeeping operation in the Awdal region of Somaliland. The owner is a passionate beekeeper and resilient businessman who has been practicing his craft for over a decade. Rasmi honey is sold in Hargeisa, Djibouti, Amoud, and occasionally in the United Arab Emirates. Rasmi was founded as a small operation with a desire to grow, but had no capital with which to expand its business.
Financing facilitated by Shuraako has enabled Rasmi to increase production by 153% and acquire a larger market share. The business has grown its number of employees and increased its export capacity by expanding honey production and improving the quality of its products.
