Driller, Obuloni Mwanza
Obuloni Mwansa worked as a well digger for the Chipata water department. Obuloni is used to finding water in difficult areas. He would sometimes even use dynamite to make a well. He wants to expand his well digging business into manual drilling. He is very happy that he could follow the technical training given by Jacana SMART Centre.
Guiding & Monitoring data
Together with Erasmus, Francisco and Andrew, Obuloni drilled a borehole and installed a pump at Andrew Zulu’s house in Mkwekwe. Andrew will use the pump for marketing purposes and he will use the water for his household and the neighbours will also use the water for household use. Joseph Kabwe produced the pump.
Together with Erasmus, Francisco and Andrew he is drilling four boreholes under supervision of a Jacana assistant. They are drilling at their houses. The pumps will be uses for marketing purposes, but of course also used for domestic use by his family and neighboring families.
Obuloni Mwanza is married and has seven children and five grandchildren. Together with his wife he is farming. In the past Obuloni was working for Chipata water department digging open wells. At the moment there is not much work for him digging open wells, but after the technical training in manual drilling he believes that he can expand his business in drilling boreholes manually.
During the business training, Obuloni showed great interest in how he can expand his farming and drilling business.
Jacana trained Obuloni in manual drilling and rope pump installation. Jacana will guide Obuloni in expanding his business. All the boreholes drilled by Obuloni and the pump installed will get a quality check done by Jacana.
