A loan helped to pay for a solar irrigation pump.

Leyah's story

Leyah is a 36-year-old female farmer based in the Chipata district of Eastern Province, Zambia, where she lives with four of her family members.

She has been farming for over five years and is asking for a loan to get a solar submersible pump. Having a pump will enable her to grow tomatoes, onions, carrots and rapeseed, as well as provide water for her animals. She will also be able to double her cultivated area and grow other crops in the near future. This will see her increase her profits in the future and contribute to the national food basket.

Rent-To-Own will deliver the water pump to Leyah's farm and will ensure that she is trained to properly use and maintain it so that it will work for a long time.
