A loan helped To purchase a water tank.
Even smallholder farmers based in deep rural villages in Kenya get that when you conserve water in water tanks, you are doing a big favor for the environment. Hyline, a mother of two, is a mixed farmer based in Nyamira, Kenya. She is seeking a loan to purchase a water tank that will be installed in her farm. After six years in farming, she has come to appreciate the use of water in her life. In one day, she uses water for domestic purposes, farming purposes and consumption. She believes saving rainwater in a water tank is an environmentally friendly way to prevent water wastage and to fully utilize the best of what nature has to offer. With your loan, Hyline will store water that will provide water for dairy animals and poultry consumption, gardening, cleaning, cooking, drinking and washing. The convenience of a water tank location will also spare Hyline’s energy for going to fetch water down the river. When asked "How will this loan benefit your family?" Hyline replied, "My family’s basic needs will easily be taken care of."
