Margaret’s community in Kenya benefits from a borehole, pipeline and water kiosk system World Vision installed in 2013. Getting access to clean water was a burden lifted, Margaret said.
"We felt so grateful because of going so far for water, and also that we're getting clean water," she says.
Before the water system came, her family farmed just a half-acre of maize and couldn't produce enough to sustain the family. With plenty of water, and some training from World Vision, they have since ramped up their production to six acres of maize, cowpeas, cassava, beans, and various fruits. It’s ample produce to feed themselves and make a profit at market. Their income has significantly increased, too.
"I'm not the only one benefitting from improved production; other people in the community are benefitting, too," she says..
