Farmer, Elina Zulu

Elina Zulu is a farmer, growing maize and other field crops. As a female entrepreneur, she is an inspiration to other women in the community. At the moment she wants to expand into gardening and poultry. She is excited that Jacana helped her to pay for a pump and a ground water recharge system.
The video below was taken before the project started:
Hastings Mbewe and Steven Zulu installed a pump at farmer Elina Zulu. They also made a ground water recharge system for her. It will catch a lot of water this raining season. The pump was made by Moses Banda.

Elina is married with 6 children; she is living with her husband at their owned farm. Besides growing maize, groundnuts and beans, Elina wants to expand into chicken poultry and gardening. Living in a dam area for many years, Elina discovered that not many people are interested in growing vegetables and rearing chickens even though the products are marketable and profitable if properly managed.

After determining to expand in this direction, Elina realized two things where necessary: water and the business skills. Consequently, she attended the 3 days of Jacana business training of which she was very successful and motivated.
