Young woman excels in farming

Zulema registered at the Arekopaneng Centre’s Career Development Programme in 2017, after years of being unemployed. Afrika Tikkun helped to support her basic needs, while she grew in her knowledge of business and entrepreneurship. Upon completion of the course, she was given the opportunity to pitch her business idea at the BizHub for young and upcoming entrepreneurs. “It was the first time I ever presented my business idea,” she explained. Her farming business idea stood out, making her a winner of R 12 500, 00. “I want to see my co-operative making money. My wish is for my farm to produce spinach juice,” Zulema proudly said.
