Farmer, Simbani Chibwe
Mr Simbani is a self-motivated entrepreneur who has enthused many other community members to escape poverty through farming and selling cooking oil. Now he wants to expand in growing more cabbages. Such an idea combined with Simbani’s work spirit is worth investing on nevertheless, enough water is a prerequisite to this business. Jacana helped Simbani and provided a partly sponsored borehole plus pump. Although Mr. Simbani wanted to use his pump for his garden, he decided the people of his community go first. Although he paid for it and he is maintaining the pump.
Simbani and two sons
Mr. Simbani worked hard on his business plan for selling his cabbages.
We stopped adding monitoring data after August 2017.
The pump at Mr Simabi Chibwe’s plot has been installed and is working.
The entire village has only one pump (before Jacana SMART Centre partly sponsored the rope pump). They keep very good care of that pump, but when it breaks down and needs to be repaired, the village has an enormous challenge to get fresh water.
Now he can grow his cabbages and provides water for the community members.
