This proposal cites lack of clean water and sanitation as major challenges, as well as cost and access to water and sanitation resources. The proposal also notes a discrepancy between supply of water and demand. The team offers a model to create an entrepreneurial distribution market for clean water, focusing on individual entrepreneurs who will sell and deliver clean water to households. This approach empowers residents by giving them a chance to fulfill the market need, earn money, and invest in their communities.
