Every now and then a post surfaces online that inspires many social media users. One man, who was only identified as @ydb_ZN, managed showed off his hustle on Twitter and it gathered thousands of reactions.
On Saturday, @ydb_ZN, who owns Khondlo Poultry Farm, shared photos of his business and he gave other social media users some advice.
"My advice to someone who wants to get into poultry farming, between egg production and meat production I would say meat production. A fully grown broiler takes 35 days to be ready for the market and layer takes 18-20 weeks to start laying."
Take a look at his post below:
The post gathered over 4 700 reactions and South Africans flooded @ydb_ZN's timeline with more questions.
He revealed in one response that he started the successful venture with only R500 in his pocket.
His reponse read:
"No funding. You can start very small something you can afford... The first day I started I had R500 with me, I probably spent R2 000 until they reached maturity."
In another post, @ydb_ZN revealed his business has been so successful that he could afford to turn down an investment of a whopping R100 000.
South Africans were inspired by @ydb_ZN's hustle and they applauded him in the comment section.

Briefly.co.za previously reported on another inspiring farmer. A woman, Mpumelelo LaNdabezitha, is one of the farmers who are tasked with feeding the nation during these difficult times.
Agriculture falls under essential services and with good reason. Without our farmers there would be no food in the supermarkets. LaNdabezitha took to the #ImStaying Facebook page recently to show off her hard work and to gush about being a farmer in the most crucial times.
