Asareram Badayak is a smallholder farmer in Nepal. He previously cultivated Sugarcane and off-season vegetables, but several droughts and an absence of a reliable water source reduced his agricultural yield. With Gham Power’s smart-controlled Solar Water Pumps, Asareram has seen drastic changes in his yield and income. His annual net income and yield from agriculture has since doubled. Gham Power uses the agricultural information retrieved from “Smart Meters” to design agricultural practices that maximize the income of rural farmers.
The Solar Water Pumps can be purchased on flexible monthly payment schemes, over the period of three years. Repayments for this scheme can be paid via mobile money, eliminating the need for physical collection of installments.
