Solar irrigation pumps helping to change lives

Kpadonou Hounlessondj, a respected farmer in the vllage of Aglanvikope, in the Bas-Mono region of southern Togo, has been tlling the soil with passion since he retired from his job as a welder.

From a modest start in 2008, he now owns a vast farm that produces vegetables and

maize.”Thanks to the revolutionary solar irigation pump given to me, my tomatoes, maize,carrots, cabbages and beets are doing better than ever.

“This ingenious technology, with its sprinkler system, ensures optimal irigation across my land. It is far better than the system of pipes I was using previously. Now, my harvests are abundant, and my hives are producing good-quality honey,” he said.
