When we start to harvest the nuts, the conditions in the bush can cause difficulties for us. We sometimes get snake bites, and attack from bees. The nuts are abundant so we can go and gather plenty but cannot carry all back to the house, so we have to leave them somewhere and go back. When we go back they have started rotting.ā€¯After collecting the shea fruits, it is very hectic and time consuming to process the fruits into shea nuts. Most times it takes us many days to finish.
