The foot pump that changed the lives of Letina and her family

I have been producing vegetables for more than ten years. I used to grow them in a very small plot of land and watered the land manually with a bucket. We used to grow vegetables for household consumption. Production was not satisfactory, it was not enough for our family.”

The foot pump has changed my life and the lives of my family completely. Now, I am able to grow vegetables in an area almost ten times bigger than in the past, and my production has increased by almost the same proportion. I use the foot pump to grow vegetables on a mountainous area which would be impossible otherwise.”
