Developing and Exporting Ideas From BOP Countries

I have redesigned traditional hand-pumps and park equipments to work together. The result is a water lifting device which is twice as efficient as manual water pumps and has minimal operational costs.
These instruments can save 2-3 hours from a villagerís life and cut pollution substantially. Moreover, they will utilize rural youth and give them a way to contribute to village's economic growth.
I would like to market and produce them in India (or any other market)
Can you tell me the direction I should take now. Where would I be able to find investors?

Help in Marketing and Producing Redesigned Water Pumps

I donít know much. However you can start your search on the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Its mission is to help end poverty here in Asia and the Pacific. When you mentioned Water pumps it reminded me of Fiji who will find that useful. ADB might be able to point you to right direction or what NGO to approach. Itís not a definite direction but itís a start. Good Luck Prachi!
