Her big break arrived after she joined six small-scale farmers at the Spar Rural Hub Project. Through the project, Leydah learnt to develop her skills further and even drew up visions of expanding her empire, Briefly.co.za discovered.
She says the project helped her turn a small business to a much larger enterprise.
Leydah made the most of the opportunity and soon Spar was providing a market for her produce while allowing Leydah to maintain her autonomy as an independent enterprise.
Now, Leydah is able to employ 16 hard-working women, helping them improve their lives and support their loved ones.
