Join me and expert consultant Femke Markus of Spring Associates. Only 1% of households in rural Bangladesh have a piped water connection. The market value of water utilities in rural Bangladesh for people not yet serviced is estimated at $285 million. Water often becomes contaminated through improper transport and storage. Safe (piped) water available inside the house has a positive impact on health, child development, the position of women in society and economic development of the country. The potential market and the need is significant. We set out to prove it isn’t just a pipe dream: Max Water Social Business. We provide households with a pipe to their doorstep: 1) A physical solution for water supply; small-scale piped schemes. Low investment, easy maintenance. 2) A business model for water supply operated by local entrepreneurs, regulated by local government. Water is a difficult business and we’re eager to exchange experiences.
