Novuy­ile Dukuza (66) joined Fundirite in 2016, earn­ing a salary for her work in rais­ing the crops. She will now, as payment for her ef­forts, be al­lot­ted her own plot, for which she will re­ceive a rental, and a share of prof­its and pro­duce. “This has made a big dif­fer­ence in my life,” says Dukuza, a mother of four, with two chil­dren still at school and two look­ing for jobs. “I now have some money, and we are eat­ing bet­ter at home,” she says. “I can send my kids to school. It helps.” Dukuza is ex­cited about get­ting her own land. “I’m very in­ter­ested and ex­cited about this,” she says. “I’m proud that I will be own­ing my own land. It’s some­thing I look for­ward to.”
