Farmer, Pickson Nyirenda needs water in dry season

Pickson Nyirenda is a hardworking and visionary farmer. He is looking forward to increasing production and his market catchment.  He wants to expand into vegetable garden and has a small piggery. He has now a reliable water source and he is able to expand in pigggery and vegetable growing. He is very happy that Jacana supported him with access to water. 


Mr. Pickson Nyirenda is a father of 6 children. He owns a farm in Kauzu area near Msekera turn off. He grows field crops such as Maize, soya beans and groundnuts; he also has a rapid growing piggery. This time he wants to concentrate largely on vegetable production and piggery farming. The pump provided plays a crucial role to this expansion.
