With just one day remaining until the conclusion of the Windhoek Agricultural, Livestock, and Motor Show, local entrepreneurs have seized the opportunity to showcase their products and strive for profitability at this grand event.
The showgrounds have become a bustling hub for a diverse range of participants, including traditional food stalls, automobile enthusiasts, skilled technicians, and agriculture aficionados. The local entrepreneurial spirit is in full swing, with many individuals venturing into innovative product lines sourced from organic, locally available materials.
