A loan helped to pay for a solar irrigation pump.


Febiano's story

Febiano lives on a farm in Chongwe District, Zambia with his family of five.

Febiano is asking for a loan so that he can obtain a water pump to help him irrigate his crops during the dry season. Febiano grows vegetables such as cabbage, rape and pumpkin leaves, which he sells at a nearby local market in order to earn an income and support his family. He currently uses buckets to irrigate his field, but he hopes to acquire a pump that will be less labor-intensive and more efficient in order to increase his yield and thereby increase his income.

Rent-to-Own will deliver the water pump directly to Febiano’s farm in Chongwe District. Rent-to-Own will also provide Febiano with training on how to properly use and maintain the water pump. With the water pump, Febiano will be able to expand his fields because of being able to irrigate his crops throughout the dry season.


This loan is special because:

It helps farmers acquire productive assets for business and farming activities.
