SunCulture is Changing Lives Through Mobile-enabled Solar-powered Irrigation in Kenya

In 2015, the GSMA Mobile for Development Utilities programme awarded SunCulture a grant to design and scale solar-powered irrigation systems that make it cheaper and easier for farmers in Kenya to grow high-value fresh fruits and vegetables. The RainMaker is a solar-powered irrigation system aimed at smallholder farmers, utilising pay-as-you-go technology to ensure affordability and therefore extending access to water pumping solutions to underserved communities in the developing world, starting with Kenya.
