New business models bring solar irrigation to Malian farmers

Funded by USAID, the projetc “Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Small Scale Irrigation” (ILSSI) aims to identify how water access and management can help small-scale farmers improve their income, water and food security, and also lead to greater climate resilience. Solar pumps provide households with access to water for multiple uses. They can be used to irrigate gardens, reduce the burden of water supply for women, while increasing yields and quality of production.
