In Pietermaritzburg (KZN) there are two girls with a dream of starting their own hydroponic farm, Nikisha and Whitney have spoken about starting this business for years while they were studying.
Nikisha Singh started doing the New Venture Creation course with Spesres that teaches you all the fundamentals about becoming an entrepreneur.
Nikisha saw the opportunity that the Ibhizinisi fund offers and took a chance to see if her business will cut it. Fortunately for her, her passion, drive and her degree in biology helped her to be one of the finalists to acquire the funding.
They started putting the farm together and we cannot wait to see how this farm is going to grow and change the outlook on hydroponic farming within urban areas.
