S/He recalled in his/her letter how hard the farmers drove themselves...
You're right! Self-exploitation just doesn't make it, in English. My suggestion is to take advantage of English's preference for verbs over nouns, and change the name of the action (the noun, self-exploitation), to a verb describing the process. Hope this will fit in with the rest of your text.
