Chitwan Fish Farms
SunFarmer partnered with Winrock International and Sana Kisan Krishi Sahakari (a farmer cooperative) to provide affordable financing and technology performance guarantees for solar water pumping in Nepal.
SunFarmer installed a 750Wp solar array to power a 600W pump with a water head of 4.2 meters. The farmers provided an upfront payment, and Winrock International provided a subsidy for the project. The remaining amount was financed by SunFarmer. Sana Kisan Krishi Sahakari will collect the farmers’ repayments in monthly installments over a three year period and pass them on to SunFarmer with a small amount deducted as their collection fee.
