The Qobo Qobo Essential Oils Incubator, a social enterprise, was established by Siyakholwa in 2014, and stands as a beacon of opportunity at the picturesque foothills of the Amathole Mountains. With a focus on economic and social upliftment, Qobo Qobo has created an inclusive environment that empowers the local farming community to enter the thriving essential oils agriculture and production markets.
The success of the Qobo Qobo Essential Oils incubator is twofold.
One the one hand, it offers a profitable venture for essential oils production, yielding substantial returns for farmers and contributing to the prosperity of the community. On the other hand, it fosters knowledge transfer, skills development, and self-sufficiency, enabling farmers to build sustainable futures for themselves and their families.
