Henry's story

Henry is a 57-year-old smallholder farmer. Henry’s farm is located in Chibombo district in the Central Province of Zambia.

Henry has been farming for over four years and grows maize and tomatoes. Over the past few years, Henry has relied on the rain to irrigate his crops. He would like to continue growing his crops long after the rain season is over. To do this, Henry needs a water pump to enable him to irrigate his crops during the dry season.

Henry is asking for a loan in order to obtain a solar submersible water pump.

Rent-To-Own is keen on helping rural farmers explore new irrigation technologies such as solar water pumps that are not widely available in Zambia. Rent-To-Own will deliver the solar water pump to Henry’s farm, help him install it, and train him on how to use it.
