The benefits of a reliable pump that doesn’t require costly fuel are obvious in Africa. With a climate that is typically hot and dry, agriculture has always been a challenge here. Climate change is making it even more difficult. As increasingly frequent, extended and severe droughts become the norm, the need for reliable irrigation is pressing.
Focusing on communities in Africa, TradeInAfrika.org provides Small-scale Farmers and their Households with the tools like Solar-Powered Water pumps and education to develop sustainable water to improve agriculture, and empower people to create sustainable clean water access, hygiene, and sanitation solutions.
The relatively high upfront cost of these equipments put them out of reach of most farmers. Banks and other financial institutions are also slow to embrace full-scale lending. For every $300 to $1200 raised, a small-scale farmer receives a solar water pump and their entire family could also receive a water filtration system, essential safe water, hygiene and sanitation training. Also, monitoring by the TradeInAfrika.org team will ensure the they are equipped to increase their gross profit of farm produce by up to 350%, while providing enough nutrition for their family too.
