The problem:

When the climatic phenomenon "El niño" arrived in the Central American region, facing the worst drought in its history, with little access to water and food, increasing the need for high-capacity water purifiers to purify water with sediment, distributing water filter, in rural and urban communities, collaborating with NGO´s and organized communities, discovering the need for a more effective product and storage, awakening resilience and innovation with new technologies to adapt to climate change.

How we will sustain our team financially:

The cost of the gallon of purified water in Central America is US $ 2.00. If we leased our system, at a cost of U $ 1.00 a day, with the subtraction of a river or a nearby water well, we would save the consumer $ 1 per day, less physical wear, higher quality, quantity and cost-benefit.

The factors limiting our success:

 Our risk is not getting full financing, to start our business model, and that other companies already established in the market, copy our product and establish in the market
