The proud farmer’s story was shared in a post on the Agriculture and Young Facebook page, with Maletsiri offering advice to young people who want to be farmers:

“Don't be afraid to start small; use what you have and research the type of farming you want to create. Read books about agriculture. Attend seminars.
“Go to college if you can. Take short courses. Do job shadowing at a farm. Most importantly, apply that knowledge practically at your farm.
"You will not be good at something by relying on verbal information. Put more effort into learning. The application is also key.”
