In the space of a year, Phathutshedzo Madula started a farm and an agro-processing business in Limpopo that produces vegetables and chilli that is known across the country. And the intrepid entrepreneur has no intention of stopping there. He believes that his latest business, Marvel Chilli Sauce, is not his most successful yet.
The sauce is produced by vegetables from his farm and processed by his agro-processing company. Madula told Vutivi News he was proud that he had developed his products on his own after obtaining the knowledge while he was unemployed.
