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.
