Meet Koketso Moloko - a successful woman farmer

Starting a farm during lockdown was tough but now she has some big clients

| By

Koketso Moloko started farming a 10ha piece of land during lockdown. It was hard. She donated a portion of her crops to people in Molote City, North West Province. A bit over a year later and she is selling to McDonalds and has expansion plans.

Moloko comes from a family of farmers. She had previously farmed with her father on their smallholding in their village.
