Products In Development
At KickStart, our Product Innovations Development (PID) team in Nairobi is constantly at work improving our current products and developing new money-making technology for people in the developing world.
For the foreseeable future, we will remain focused on irrigation technologies because we feel that this is where we can have the greatest impact on global poverty.
In our product pipeline, we are working on a Deep Lift Pump that can pull water from sources with a maximum depth of 18 meter (60ft) These pumps provide “pressurized hosepipe irrigation” (like a garden hose) using a low-cost 1 inch diameter hosepipe. This patented pumping technology has been proven and is being “market tested” in Kenya and will be launched to the mass-market soon and will retail for under $180. As with our other pumps, the new design is portable, easy to install for an untrained person, and must be affordable for poor farmers.
The PID team is also working on a MoneyMaker Starter Pump that will retail for less than 50% the price of our most affordable pump, the MoneyMaker Hip Pump. This pump will appeal to an even poorer segment of farmers who will use our technologies to lift themselves out of poverty.
