By Mthunzi Maziya - SWAZI OBSERVER-22-Jan-2010

A group of about 25 women farmers who attended a TechnoServe driven workshop at National Handicraft Training Centre yesterday have extended appreciation for the opportunity that was availed to them.

Speaking on behalf of all the participants, reigning Women Farmer of the Year, Winile Zulu said they learnt a lot from the workshop. She said they now knew how to prepare books, a budget, and to keep records of all the transactions they undertook.


“The knowledge of how to develop business plans would help us in many ways as we need to have these in order to be able to access loans, as well as efficiently run our businesses,” she said.

She also noted that with more of such courses, the future of women farmers was bright. She said if it were up to her, there would be more than one Women farmer of the Year awarded.


“The treatment we received whilst undertaking the course was very good. We appreciate all that was done for us and have no doubt that the knowledge we have acquired shall go a long way in improving our businesses,” she said.

Ending, Zulu thanked the ministry of agriculture, TechnoServe and World Vison for having provided them with the opportunity.
