Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?
Our actual target customers are off-grid rural village people (about 56 million)
who are not blessed with electricity. As Roshnee kit is the cheapest source of electricity, our target group is determined to use it.
Initially in targeted villages 800-900 Roshnee kits will be provided to the
families at a cost of $3 collaborating with PALLY BIKASH KENDRA and
RURAL SERVICE FOUNDATION. These NGO stuffs will motivate the
families telling cost benefit of adapting Roshnee kit alongside.
Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?
Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered
In 2013 as a pilot project, we took “Shabdi” village as our site. We had been
able to provide electricity at Shabdi village through ROSHNEE kit to more
than 32 houses. .Thus, Noticeable social impact was found in our survey.
Drop out from school had also been reduced from 63% to 35%. Now, 76%
primary school going children study at night. Literacy rate(Primary level
passed) has been increased from 13% to 21%.
