Driller, Andrew Zulu

Andrew dug wells until he heard of manual drilling. He attended the technical training of three weeks and now he is ready to expand his business by drilling boreholes manually and install pumps. He is very happy that Jacana wants to guide him in expanding his business.

Andrew is married and has two children and is living in Mkwekwe, Section B in Khova Ward. Together with his wife he is farming and next to that he is a well digger. Well digging is not without any risk. You have to go deep into a well and it can be dangerous, especially for Andrew, he is a very tall, big man. That is why Andrew was very happy that he was selected for the technical drilling training. Now he is well equipped to expand his business in manual drilling of boreholes and pump installation.
