Without proper access to running water, farming can be a daunting task. Yet this is the reality that farmers must confront in some parts of Kenya. Such conditions severely limit their ability to increase their yields and secure a stable income for themselves and their family.

This alone makes sustaining adequate water levels challenging, but it’s compounded by reliance on wells for irrigation.

In this video, you’ll see how Monica, an independent farmer in East Africa, has leveraged digital transformation to overcome these challenges. You’ll learn how IoT devices, solar energy, and Microsoft Azure can combine to sustain profitable farming operations, even in some of the harshest conditions on the planet.
