Modern technology has enabled farmers to obtain impressive yields that sustain entire populations while allowing them to become as efficient as possible with their available resources. However, most of this technology is dependent upon stable electrical grids, large-scale aqueducts, and a steady fuel supply, all of which are not readily available to millions of farmers around the world.
One of these farmers is Monica, who depended on a water well located on her property as her only water source to sustain both her farm and her family.

Thankfully, just as things seemed impossible, digital transformation provided her with the solution she needed to secure a better future.
