She is the founder of Lopey Inc (Pty) Ltd T/A trading as Sereledi an agricultural based business focusing on Dairy production and Dairy processing. Being in a male dominated and scarce industry she leads with passion, energy and dedication to a team of millennials and continues to inspire and grow oncoming youth in Agriculture.
Through the trials and tribulations of being a second generational farmer she works on overcoming each trail with a steadfast mind that success can be obtained by a young female motswana. Ms Wright is currently studying Business Communications and has acquired a lot of skills in farming, especially animal husbandry, fodder production and processing techniques, during her years as a young entrepreneur.
In 2015 she launched her dairy brand ‘Sereledi’ which offers two flavours of drinking yogurt, Madila and Fresh milk which are currently sold in Maun.
Sereledi has created a space in the homes of the people of Maun, when they are in Sereledi they feel as if they are walking into their own kraals. Ms Wright and her team not only bring food security to the village but helps the community by supplying local hawkers with products to sell more especially madila. This initiative enables other community members to create a livelihood for themselves.
