In December 2014 we delivered 10 water shops for the BoP in India having the following features:
1. Water is sold at a price of 0,35 INR or 0,0047 euro per liter;
2. Water is desalinated using state of the art Reverse Osmosis technology;
3. The shops are fully automated;
4. Customers are using and automatic billing system to pay for the water.
Local analysis and business model are basis for sustainable solution
The water shops were installed after that an analysis of the local water situation showed that a viable business model could be applied. This model was discussed with the local community and once a agreement was reached installation of the water shop was started.
