– A farmer, who was only identified by his Twitter handle @ydb_ZN, inspired social media users
– He opened up about starting a business in agriculture and how much he used
– @ybd_ZN also gave South Africans advice on the most profitable route to take in poultry farming
Every now and then a post surfaces online that inspires many social media users. One man, who was only identified as @ydb_ZN, showed off his business on Twitter and it gathered thousands of reactions.
On Saturday, @ydb_ZN, who owns Khondlo Poultry Farm, shared photos of his business and he gave other social media users a piece of advice.
“My advice to someone who wants to get into poultry farming, between egg production and meat production I would say meat production. A fully grown broiler takes 35 days to be ready for the market and layer takes 18-20 weeks to start laying.”
South Africans flooded @ydb_ZN’s timeline with more questions.
He revealed in one response that he started the successful venture with only R500 (N11,400.37) in his pocket.
His response read:
“No funding. You can start very small something you can afford… The first day I started I had R500 with me, I probably spent R2000 until they reached maturity.”
In another post, @ydb_ZN revealed his business has been so successful that he could afford to turn down an investment of a whopping R100,000 (N228,188.62).
South Africans were inspired by @ydb_ZN’s business and they applauded him in the comment section.
