JOHANNESBURG: He started his prototype business at his parents’ house and eventually came up with aquaponics system that is operating at the back of his parents’ house.
A 26-year-old vibrant Letlotlo Modise from Kuruman in Northern Cape is the owner of Tre`Culture – Aquaponics System. He started his business through a grant from National Youth Development Agency (NYDA).
He started his prototype business at his parents’ house and eventually came up with aquaponics system that is operating at the back of his parents’ house.
Driven by his vision, Letlotlo approached the NYDA for funding at the beginning of this year and was granted R50 000 to purchase equipment to build his aquaponics such as Jojo-tank, tools and fish tanks.
He dreams to be the biggest supplier in his home province and to expand his business and open more franchise.
Speaking to the Republic Mail, Letlotlo was full of praise for the NYDA.
“NYDA assisted me with funding and moral support to make sure that my dream of having and opening new aquaponics system happens,” he said.
Currently Letlotlo is running his business alone with the support from his father whom is his strength of his pillar.
His message to young is that wake up and keep on working towards your goal no matter the situation you find yourself into just do it and push harder ultimately you will reap what you have sowed.
He also thank NYDA for being there when he needed the agency the most.
