According to SebenzaLIVE, Siyavuya Co-operative Limited is a 20 hectares farm outside Steenbok in Mpumalanga, and they specialise in livestock, crops and aquaculture.

According to the young businesswoman, her parents felt the company needed a bit of her youthful input, despite both having decades of experience.

Although she is making a success, Sambo decided to pursue a Diploma in Business Administration, which she believes would help improve her skills.

The farm consists of 102 cattle, 354 sheep and goats, 34 pigs, 13 poultry houses, 54 beehives, 563 mango trees and five dams for fishing- and it is only the start for the young, hungry entrepreneur.
