Farming is not an easy job to do. You need to get everything right in order to break out of the poverty cycle. Young farmers need to grow cash crops to generate an income which will enable them to grow and empower themselves. Many farmers in Kenya pump water by using petrol pumps, hand or carry it in buckets from a village water collection point to their crops. Not only is this a slow and physically grueling task, but often times the shallow wells and seasonal rains mean farmers can’t grow crops in the dry season. If you are starting out in farming the costs incurred of running petrol pumps can make you give up almost immediately if you combine this challenge with other beginner setbacks that affect new farmers.
Farmers need a reliable, low-cost water pumping system to grow the extra food they need to make a poverty-busting profit.
Such a pump is the GF1 Submersible Solar Pump designed to be the perfect water pump solution.
