Farmer, Sofia Lungu

Farmer Sofia manages a farm of 15 acres. She grows different types of crops and wants to expand in vegetable growing. When she can grow vegetables in dry season, prices are much better. It serves the community and her business. This is now possible, because she has access to water throughout the year, thanks to the water pump. 

Sofia Lungu is married and mother of 8 children. She lives in Apollo Dam 2 in Msekera Area. She has a big farm with 15 ha. of land. She grows crops during the rainy season like: maize, groundnuts and soya beans. She always liked to grow vegetables outside the rainy season and now that she has a pump on her open well it makes it more easy for her to water the vegetables. She will also use the water for household.
