Mothae Agricultural Kickstart Program
Since 2019, Mothae Mine has been helping to support farmers who live near the mine to earn extra income. The mine supplies a variety of seeds and fertiliser to the farmers to grow seasonal fruit and vegetables. Once the produce is grown, the mine kitchen purchases it from the farmers to use in meals which are served up to the workforce. This is an ongoing program with more than a dozen farmers involved in growing carrots, cabbage, potatoes and mustard. About one million Lesotho Maloti worth of produce is purchased each year from the farmers.
