It has been about 3.5 years since Keith Teichmann, Xylem's Director of Innovative Networks and Marketing, and his team were first tasked with identifying and creating the right pumping product to market to farmers in the developing world while also building a sustainable business model at the base of the economic pyramid.

Hundreds of interviews in rural farming communities in India, Africa, Pan-Asia and South America, along with intensive field testing and lab work resulted in the Saajhi Stepping Pump, a human-powered treadle pump that is far better than any available equivalent.
"It's no contest," says Teichmann.
...
The biggest technological shift that sets it apart from previous treadle pumps, according to Teichmann, is that it uses neoprene-based diaphragms for its pumping chambers rather than the traditional leaky pistons.
"It's a closed chamber, like the human heart. Just as the human heart is the most efficient way of pumping blood in the human body, the diaphragm is the most efficient way of pumping water in a treadle product," he says.
...
The reasons for delving into these tricky waters are simple, according to Teichmann: there is no competition and the potential is enormous.
No straightforward business strategy for the market yet exists, however. Xylem's approach is a combination of commercial channels using carefully vetted local distribution and service partners, and cooperation with international organizations, governments and NGOs that provide subsidy programs or other ways to make the product available in particularly impoverished areas.
"To be taken seriously by those organizations, we have to establish credibility not only with the business model development, but in the product execution," Teichmann says.
...
"The first thing a farmer looks at is quality, because spending money on a cheap product that breaks puts a tremendous economic burden on their ability to support their family," says Teichmann.
...
We are building a unique and sizeable base of customers who will grow in our products, either through moving via urbanization or expansion of their farms in rural communities," says Teichmann.
