Female farmer Sinethemba Masinga is sprouting news ideas in the agriculture industry and Mzansi says it’s the only way to overcome “black poverty”.

Masinga, 22, is a second-generation farmer who hails from KwaZulu-Natal. The young lady overseas five farmworkers over two pieces of land and is the director of Sinesthembiso Produce.

Masinga commented said:

"If I’m not monitoring basic tasks likes fencing, fetching water, and supervising harvesting, I also keep the records of the farms accurate and up-to-date. I handle our business account to manage all our monthly expenses and payrolls and make sure the profits we make are used for emergencies or saving towards resources for labour on the farms.”

Female farmer explains how she got into the business, gives advice to young girls

Previously Briefly News wrote a piece about a female farmer, @Keneilwe_farmerette, who took some snaps with her squad.

Her squad turned out to be cows and she is a farmer.

Briefly News got in contact with her and asked her how she got into farming, what her plans are for the future, what she thinks about the country and if she had any advice for young girls.

She revealed that her father's best friend was a farmer and she had followed him everywhere. Growing up, she never thought that she'd become a farmer but she had learned so much that it came naturally to her.

Working in a male-dominated environment she believes that there is still a lot of negativity around women in the workplace, especially those that succeed as CEOs and farmers.
