Biemba's story

Biemba is a 54-year-old male small-scale farmer based in the Choma District of Southern Province Zambia, where he lives with five of his family members.

Biemba has been farming for over five years and is currently growing tomatoes and maize. He is asking for a loan to enable him to obtain a solar submersible pump for irrigation. Having a pump will see him effectively water his garden, increase his cultivated area and improve the quality of his crops. This will also allow him to grow more vegetables in the future and increase his income.

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