Watering Community in Nicaragua

Watering Community in Nicaragua

Fanor is a farmer from Jucuapa Abajo in Matagalpa Zone in Nicaragua. The farm needed a lot of water to stay operational, and water service in the summer was spotty at best. Then he received Seeds, Tools & Training, where he learned new irrigation techniques. Fanor constructed a series of micro-dams on his farm, which allow him to reduce the amount of water he draws from a natural spring.

This new system guarantees him a reliable irrigation system all summer long — and he’s no longer dependent on fuel to make sure his crops get enough water. Energized, Fanor has been teaching his neighbors how to micro-dam their own farms, creating a network of farmers who can lean on one another for transformative knowledge and resources.
