In response to Our solution:

I live in a small city, on a lake, outside of Guadalajara, Mexico. There are many communities around this largest lake in Mexico that have no access to clean water. Hence, the Coca Cola company delivers, by truck, 5 liter bottles for water for sale at exorbitant prices that local people can not afford. So they drink polluted lake water, filled with toxins. Kidney disease is a major problem here. This system, linked with small local grocery stores could be a big help toward healthier living.

In response to How we will measure our progress:

Outcomes for goals 1&2 are the same. Would like to see some outcomes figures around employment and economic improvement.

Dan Nolan

Our methods for measurement are the same for the first two objectives but our metrics are different. For access to clean water our mobile IT tracks tracks total gallons of water distributed each day. For economic improvement our mobile IT tracks revenue from goods sold from each of our retailers. We currently have 102 direct employees and have a network of 527 retailers. Our direct distribution improves the daily earnings of our retailers 30-60%. Thanks for taking the time to check our project.
