In 2020, GLOW invested in solar water pumps to be distributed through our Solar Centers in Kenya with Sun Transfer Kenya (STKE).
GLOW is providing the funding needed to purchase solar powered water pumps and irrigation systems as new inventory for the Solar Centers around the country.
All of the pumps are installed by the trained technicians working at the Solar Centers. And the pumps will be available to purchase through installments using the money transferring system, Pay-As-You-Go, or as outright purchases.
By using the solar powered water pumps, farmers have the ability to double their yearly yield- therefore, making it accessible to pay back the total cost of the pump with ease.Plus, the cost of the pumps is significantly less than the amount most farmers would otherwise be spending on diesel fueled pumps. And once the solar pump is paid back in full- their water source is now free!
