Farmer, Loki Funwell
Loki is a productive farmer, working energetically to support his family and making ends meet. Besides his cows, he has a small piggery and is expanding in growing vegetables for sale.
The video below shows Loki at the beginning of his work with Jacana.
Drillers already started because we assume the few remaining coins to sponsor Loki will be collected soon.
The well at farmer Loki Lungu could not be deepend. There where too many hard rocks. So Osward Mwanza drilled a new borehole, installed a pump (made by Gidoen Phiri) and made a ground water recharge system for the old well.
Loki is a father of two children, a farmer growing garden vegetables and running a small piggery in Misholo of Msekera area. Loki has a garden situated next to the stream which dries up in the dry season implying that his garden is seasonal. Next to this he has over 16 cows which suffer due to shortage of water. Loki fetches water for his animals from very far places, which makes it difficult for him to expand. Presently, he has a small piggery and wants to expand it if water is provided at his premise. Piggery business is profitable in his area.
Loki followed the business training and he seemed to be very motivated. His focus was on piggery.
The pump on a manual drilled borehole is donated by:
This is part of a bigger project, sponsored by Aqua for All.
Jacana supported Loki with partly sponsored borehole and a pump:
So he can:
- Expand his piggery business.
- Provide basic education for his children.
