    #solarpumped

    For the past decade, Proximity has created products and services that support the entrepreneurial spirit of our rural Myanmar costumers. The treadle pump has been a central feature of our irrigation product offerings. Sturdy, durable, and affordable, the treadle pump has freed tens of thousands of rural families in Myanmar from the daily drudgery of hauling water to their fields.

    Today, farmers continue to look for efficient ways to save costs and expand their businesses. For many, this has meant switching to diesel engines for irrigation. Though more powerful, these heavy engines are polluting and noisy. Farmers complain about the high costs of running these motorized pumps, including daily purchases of fuel, frequent repairs and the need for extra labor to move them around. At Proximity, we’ve been working to create an alternative.

    On October 15th, we’ll celebrate the launch of our new, solar-powered irrigation pump.  Designed specifically for Myanmar farmers, Proximity’s super affordable solar pump fits into the narrow two-inch tube wells found nationwide on farms. This new product has been in the making for over a year. Now that it’s here, we can’t wait to share it with you.
