3BL Enterprises has developed Flowius, a program which builds radically affordable piped water systems to get water into the homes of rural Ethiopians. We do this by combining an engineering philosophy emphasizing affordability with a suite of mobile tools for technical and financial management, while utilizing a network of rurally-based franchises to implement our work. We’ve already piped water to 500 homes and have already gotten our engineering, construction, and technology figured out. Our goal is to solve the final piece of the puzzle: effectively finance Ethiopian water micro-grids.
