Greetings Ms Cara,

Thank you for taking interest in what we are trying to do. For the pilot, we selected the families that are near our community, so it would be easier for us to go to them and assist them if there are any problems with the system.

But right now, companies and foundations have contacted us and have expressed their desire to work with us for their CSR activities. So with these partnerships, they are the ones who will connect us to the communities they are partnered with, and we will go their to provide them training and access on aquaponics so that they will have a communal food system where the whole community will benefit from it.

For our buy 1 Give one business model, most of our customers are hobbyists, that are not price sensitive and are more health conscious. Every purchase of our aquaponic system a portion of it goes directly to our beneficiaries for their training and access on aquaponics. So far we have sold more than 100 aquaponic units.

Main challenge would be government regulations and the ease of doing business, specially here in the Philippines. Start ups have so many things to handle, given our limited funds, it would really help if our government could help start ups as well as foundations like what Nestle is doing, because we need all the help we can receive.

Warm regards from the Philippines,
Robi
