Van's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to obtain a water pump for irrigation.

Van's story

Van, age 38, is a farmer in Kabwe District, Zambia. He is asking for a loan so that he can obtain a water pump to help irrigate his crops.

On his farm, Van grows tomatoes, onions, cabbage and fresh greens. He takes them to a nearby market where he is able to sell them. He would like to expand his production, but currently he irrigates his crops by hand, using buckets to draw water from a nearby pond. A water pump would greatly reduce his workload, and allow him to also expand and cultivate a larger area.

Rent to Own will deliver a water pump directly to Van’s farm. Rent to Own will also provide Van with training on how to use and properly maintain the water pump so that it can continue to function for future years.
