MVIWATA Farmers’ Network – Irrigation Project

Amount of grant approved (£) : 2,020Year of grant : 2018

We funded this farmers’ group with a solar pump and 10 Moneymaker pumps to irrigate crops for 12 women’s groups, as part of a study to look into the relative impact of each kind of pump. The project is going very well, and each group has been able to start growing a greater range of vegetables to supplement their income. We will be visiting in August 2018 to ascertain their progress and assess which type of pump to recommend to future applicants.
