About the initiative

Maji Milele is a distributor of a wide variety of high-quality prepaid water meters. The company provides prepaid water meters for communal water points, for household connections and for purified water ATMs. All prepaid water meters are linked to mobile payment and include an online monitoring system for tracking daily payments and water consumption. Online monitoring helps to detect leakages and illegal connections. It also reduces non-revenue water significantly.

Aqua for All provided assistance in scaling the market in various counties in Northern Kenya. An initial pilot was tested in 8 counties, with 4 expected to scale.
