Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?
More than 10 million Mexicans lack potable water and 1.59 million families access this resource through hauling. The women and girls are mainly those who walk up to 10 kilometers a day carrying buckets of 20 liters of this resource, exacerbating their vulnerability.
Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?
We provide tools and resources for the autonomy of rural communities, co-creating a system of condensation and rainfall collection.

We co-create a system of condensation and rainfall collection for de autonomy of rural communities.
Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.
At first we had an individual condensation system and our market was another sector. however, when we visited a rural community we realized that the problem was even greater, it was then when we decided to make a hybrid capable of bringing this vital resource to this sector.
