SunCulture – Sankalp Africa Enterprise 2014

SunCulture designs and sells solar-powered irrigation systems and agricultural extension services that make it cheaper and easier for farmers in Kenya to grow high-value fresh fruits and vegetables. SunCulture’s AgroSolar Irrigation Kit delivers water directly to crop roots, resulting in yield gains of up to 300% and water savings of up to 80%. The payback to the farmer is one three-month growing season — based on fuel, fertilizer, and labor savings and crop yield increases. SunCulture provides access to financing through local bank partners.
