“I always wanted to be a farmer,” those were the words of 19-year-old Hope Maseko from Kinross.

The young model who completed matric at Osizweni Secondary School realized her dream of being a farmer at an early age while she was still in Grade 10 and when she changed school, she realized that she will no longer be doing Agriculture as a subject since the new school did not offer Agriculture.

While other young matriculants were looking for space at the Universities and TVET Colleges, Hope did not lose her focus and she finally found herself at Buhle Farmers’ Academy.

For Hope, being a farmer does not only mean she will be able to fulfil her dream but also creating employment for others.

She already registered her Ncamane Vally Farm company and offer consulting services on livestock farming.

Her services include vaccinating (plus provide the client with a vaccination program), Dosing + program, Dipping + program, Nutrition + feeding program, Branding, Tagging, Dehorning, and Castrating.

“My grandfather has been my pillar of support and I did most of my practical training with his livestock,” said Hope adding that her grandfather would also drive with her when she gets callout from farmers.

When she is not responding to callouts, Hope is busy looking after her newly established poultry farming business.

Her service is available to all farmers around Mpumalanga and can be contacted at 076 053 7808 or 083 380 7286 or hopenontuthukoyesize@gmail.com, Facebook: Mokgoale Hope, Instagram: hope_19maseko.
