Farmer, Marksensio Phiri
Marksensio is a hard working farmer. He sees opportunities to expand his farming business when he gets access to water throughout the year. He is very happy that Jacana supports him.
In the fourth attempt water was found just in 2 days drilling. Michael installed the pump and Marksensio made a nice fence to protect it from animals.
The borehole drilling started in July 2018 by Michael Soko. It was not an easy job, 3 times the driller hit a hard rock at 9 to 10 meters. The fourth time Michael and his team succeeded its August now.
Marksensio is married and has 4 children. He also takes care of 2 children from his relatives. Marksensio runs the farming business together with his wife. They are hard working people and they grow a lot of crops during the rainy season.
Marksensio was very active during the business training. He was eager to learn and want to practice what he learned.
Now he has access to water throughout the year and he can start an orange orchard and moulding bricks. This will be an extra income for the periods that there is no rain.
The borehole and pump was sponsored by Marie-Stella-Maris.
Jacana supported Marksensio Phiri with a pump.
So he can:
· Start his brick moulding business.
· Start his orange orchard
· Provide basic education for his children.
