      You make the machines and sell it to whoever wants to make (and sell) their own biltong. There are a myriad of tutorials online on how to make your own machine which all it does is dry the meat. Various different materials (wood, Perspex, lights and fittings, fans etc.) that can be found all over South Africa can be used to make the machine, it is up to you to do your research and take the initiative to start, without starting you don’t get anywhere. Here is of the most basic plans to build a biltong maker – https://www.africahunting.com/threads/biltong-spice-recipe.22394/#post-188160 that you can adapt to your needs (example put a transparent window in the door using Perspex or make the whole door transparent which is how commercial machines look). Once you have made your first machine put an ad on Gumtree or wherever saying that you make biltong making machines for people wanting to make and sell their own biltong. Make the machines large enough as your main market is people who are making biltong to resell and not consumers.
