Xulu said a cash injection of R21million from KZN's Department of Agriculture boosted the cooperative's activities. He explained:

We used the money for fencing, irrigation equipment, tractors and livestock. The model we have implemented of one hectare per household has proved successful and it encourages everyone to work hard.
