Rural, dollar-a-day, small plot farmers in Myanmar currently spend most of their day irrigating their land manually.  infiniCAN is a simple, raised water storage device that uses 5 ft of energy potential to channel water through a hose and spout. Farmers no longer have to carry water on their back and instead just carry a spout. By saving time, farmers are able to increase productivity and income.

Current Status

10,000 units were distributed in Myanmar after Cyclone Nargis.  They are now being used a component of irrigation systems.
