A young chili farmer, Thabiso, has managed to secure an export contract after his story went viral on social media.
Earlier this month, a woman, Unathi Kwaza, shared his story on her Twitter page. She captioned the post:
"My friend Thabiso in Limpopo grows these beautiful chilies. He has a small farm. Used to tell me that he struggled to get funding from government because those in power always asked for bribes before releasing funds. He refused to do business that way. A good man."

Only a couple of weeks after her initial post, Kwaza revealed that Thabiso managed to land an international contract.
"Great news is that after I tweeted about our young farmer in Polokwane, he's found an export contact. I live for this."
South Africans were inspired by the post and they applauded Kwaza for helping Thabiso grow his business.
Rene Kukard, who goes by the Twitter handle @ReneKukard, commented:
"All because of you! You are amazing Unathi! I love you!"
Craig Treherne, @craig_treherne, added:
"Great news, I see this young man going far."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported Ntando Thabethe is one woman who is proving that the agriculture sector is not just for men.
Thabethe lost her job in mechanical engineering sales because her company relocated from Pinetown to Johannesburg and she could not move because of her family.
Thabethe was left unemployed and her hubby became the household's only breadwinner. With more time on her hands, Thabethe decided to turn her attention to their large backyard.
