South Africans Doing Great Things

Made with Rural developing sustainability minded farmers

Seeing small-scale farmers developing in her community has vindicated Leeko Mokoena's decision to return home after "life happened" in the big city.

Mokoena founded the agribusiness Made with Rural, which links small-scale farmers to sustainable markets.

For Mokoena, it was not enough for these farmers to have the knowledge to produce crops and livestock for themselves.

Through her intervention, the farmers in her community are being equipped with innovative and modern ways of getting through paperwork and to sell their produce.

Mokoena spoke to #NightTalk's Lovelyn Nwadeyi about how she found herself serving her community through agriculture.
