Stephen Tembo is a farmer, running a poultry and growing tomatoes, he lives at his farm named Mazala, a 10 acres farm. Stehen has one grown up child and few grand children who are helping him in farming tomatoes and taking care of the poultry. Through this business he takes care of his family.

Steven Zulu and Hastings Mbewe made a new borehole on top of the hill near to the house and far from the toilet. Mrs. Tembo has difficulties walking and is very happy with this new water source. Also the neighbours use the water. Since the pump is on top of the hill, is easy to irrigate his garden which is downhill. The pump was made by George Chulu. Good work men!
