Training

Moses is in gardening business for a number of years now. His garden is located in Feni village where he is currently farming onion, tomatoes, rape and cabbage. After realizing the importance of acquiring adequate skills in business management, Moses attended the three days of business training conducted by Jacana at Feni primary school.
During the Jacana basic training he demonstrated high level of enthusiasm. At this moment Moses wants to expand his onion production. During the interview he highlighted the water challenges that he faces in dry seasons. According to him, the well dries up; livestock suffers due to shortage of water. Moses expressed interest in a borehole that would provide enough water year-round compared to a shallow well where he has to use a bucket to fetch water for his garden and live stock.
As a young potential and energetic entrepreneur, Moses has enormous hidden capacities which Jacana wants to reveal. Jacana wants to partly sponsor a boerehole with rope pump for him that would ensure continuous water supply for his garden. This solution will put him ahead of his present farming limitations. To be able to partly sponsor this water source for Moses, we need your financial help. Together we can change the business life of this young entrepreneur.

Every small amount is more than welcome.
