“While other farmers were severely impacted by the effects of Covid-19 and lockdown, Florence and her husband report making $300-350 USD weekly income throughout dry season. The MoneyMaker pump now enables them to keep and use this earned income for the benefit of their household and the school fees of their daughter in tertiary institution.”
