Sipho Zomba is a Pastor and farmer in the Alexandria district who Khanyisa Credit has supported for a number of years. The drought throughout the Eastern Cape and Alexandria has been severe and this in turn has affected the harvesting of Sipho’s crops. He is in the process of reaping his Sweet Potato crop which he plans to sell to the local population.
The Khanyisa team visited his farm recently to assess the position and have decided to look into providing a pump on the small stream which runs past the farm, in order to be able to irrigate the cash crops so that he does not have to rely on the rain to water the crops. By doing so he will provide a more steady cashflow.
