SolFlo enables small plot farmers in Myanmar to pump groundwater for irrigation without burdensome costs for fuel or hired labor. An innovative submersible pump consists of a slim waterproofed motor and a custom impeller, designed to fit into the Myanmar standard 2-inch PVC tube well. The system utilizes low-cost solar panels and local manufacturing methods. Eliminating running costs from current pumping methods will increase family income by $50 – $75 per year, improving quality of life and ability to pay for essentials including education and healthcare.
