Chicken farmer, Stelia
Stelia got access to water throughout the year, because of the partly sponsored borehole with a pump. Nothing limits her in expanding her poultry business.
The video below was taken at the beginning of the work with Stelia.
Stelia Tembo is married and has four sons and lives in the village Gimori not too far from town although when you visit her it will feel as if she is far in the bush since the road is so bad. She is keeping about two hundred chickens and explained that water is the main reason that limits her business. Now that she has access to water throughout the year, she can expand her business.
Stelia was one of the more promising students in the Jacana Business training.

Jacana supported Stelia by providing a partly sponsored borehole with pump.

- expand her chicken business,
- grow vegetables even in dry season,
- use the water for drinking and household
