Dorothy's story

Dorothy is a 26-year-old small-scale farmer based in Chisamba District where she lives with her family.

Dorothy has been farming for over five years and grows mainly maize and tomatoes. Dorothy is asking for a loan in order to obtain a diesel powered water pump. Having a water pump will reduce the labor required and improve the efficiency of Dorothy’s irrigation system. This will also allow Dorothy to expand the cultivated area of her farm and improve the quality of her produce.

Rent-To-Own will deliver the water pump to Dorothy’s farm and will ensure that Dorothy is trained on how to properly use and maintain the water pump so that it may continue to work for her over a long period of time.
