Low Income Farmers Are Shown the New and Affordable Water Pumps by KickStart International

Low-income farmers are shown the new and affordable water pumps by KickStart International. Some of the pumps are specially designed to help first-time farmers getting into the venture.

KickStart’s vision of success is to take millions of people out of poverty sustainably, and in doing so, to change the way the world fights poverty. We see the untapped entrepreneurial drive in the world’s poorest people and harness this potential for massive change.

An estimated 20 million small-scale farmers in Africa have access to sufficient renewable water resources to adopt KickStart’s technologies on their farms and turn them into profitable businesses that generate food and income year-round.
