About us

Rent to Own is an innovative and fast-growing social enterprise in Zambia, founded in 2010. We enable farmers and rural business owners to increase their income by offering them productive assets in a ready-to-use package of training, accessories, and affordable payment terms.

Our top seller is irrigation pumps for smallholder vegetable farmers; we also offer maize mills and other equipment, and we are continuously adding new products.

Our clients have little access to credit. We offer assets on payment schedules that can work for them, after a fast, thoroughly ground-tested approval process. We package these assets in a ready-to-use setup that we deliver to our rural clients, along with training on proper use and maintenance. It's through this model that we are able to provide these assets, and a path to an improved livelihood, to people who otherwise would struggle to purchase them or to use them successfully.

This model was developed through extensive field trialing and iteration. We are working with people other companies avoid, and there is no established model to make a business like ours work. We are still trying new things, and so we are still succeeding, failing and learning every day. We are growing fast and we need smart, effective people to help us expand.
