A loan helped to pay for a solar pump.

Jeff's story

Jeff is a 37-year-old male small-scale farmer based in Chongwe district of Lusaka Province, Zambia. He started farming this year and is currently growing maize and rapeseed.

Jeff is asking for a loan in order to obtain a solar submersible pump. Having a water pump will enable him to increase the cultivated area and improve his efficiency. This will also see him grow other vegetables in future and improve the quality of his produce.

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