“Most just started businesses with the idea of learning the job and they end up losing their invested money in the business.
“It is not as easy as it looks. When I started, I used to travel around the country, hosting one-day workshops. My dream is to have a place where I can teach everything in one yard.”

KZN farmer shares dreams

Thando is passionate about farming, and helping other people who want to take on the sector excel is one of her dreams:

“I want to be able to give the farmers practical experience at an affordable cost. Having the classes at the farm makes more sense because we can include practicals as part of the short course.
“By God's grace, we were able to secure such premises, located in Centurion, Gauteng.”
