Accounting was a career he wants to pursue, but after his tertiary education, getting a job was a difficult task.

“My parents are farmers, so I have some knowledge about it. I decided to go into Rabbit Farming because it was rare”
When asked how sales are made, he said there is a kitchen which supplies grilled rabbit meat, sauce, pizza and Fresh meat.
” We also supply live Rabbits if ordered. And many people don’t know that rabbit meat is the best when it comes to Low fat.” He said.
