Kolamatope 1 Group's story

Abel is a group leader in Kolamatope 1 group. He is a 33-year-old man, married with three children. He does rice farming as a business with his wife to support themselves and he has been in this business for 12 years. He enjoys this business because the business is more profitable for him and he has more customers. In the picture, he is standing at the back in blue with his hand raised.

The new loan will help him to construct a shallow well on his farm and buy a portable solar irrigation pump with panels. The pump will help him to grow rice three times a year. His dream is to educate his children and become a commercial farmer in his community.

The profits from the sales will be used to buy fertilizers to increase yield and support his children with basic needs.
