The flexipump helps farmers become financially independent through increased crop yields. Sufficient irrigation is the easiest way for subsistence farmers to increase their crop yields. However, irrigating by bucket takes too long. With a flexipump, a farmer can easily reduce the time taken to irrigate by 80%! This means they can grow more food, on a larger area, both to eat and to sell.
At only 2.5Kg's it is very easy for both men and women to use. No tools are required for maintenance, farmers can even make their own spare parts.
