Gardener, Iness Chulu

Iness is a gardener. She grows tomatoes, onions and beans during the time she has access to water. Her stream is drying up too fast and that is why she is very happy with the partly sponsored borehole with pump. Now she can grow vegetables throughout the year. She even wants to grow potatoes and cabbages.

The borehole was drilled by Moses Ngoma and assisted by Edward Tembo. This picture is just after construction, the cement still needs to cure and the water will get clean. In the mean while the water is used for farming.
