A loan helped to pay for a solar irrigation pump.


Abel's story

Abel is a 38-year-old male farmer based in Chongwe district of Lusaka Province Zambia where he lives with five of his family members.

Abel has been farming for over five years, growing crops such as maize and tomatoes. After the rain season, Abel faces challenges with irrigating his crops. Abel is asking for a loan to get a solar submersible pump. Having a pump installed at his farm will enable him grow more crops and increase his cultivated area. Abel will also be able to grow other crops in the near future. This will see him double his profits.

Rent-To-Own will deliver the water pump to Abel'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.

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