Proximity Design creates products and services that help Myanmar's rural families save labor and increase their earning power.
With no access to electricity or technology, Myanmar's small-plot farmers have few opportunities to escape extreme poverty.
Relevant, appropriate products and services like irrigation equipment, solar lighting, and financial services boost income and make daily life easier.
Proximity Designs' user-centered approach combines customer input with rapid, iterative prototyping for fast design, efficient manufacturing and distribution, and powerful results.
Proximity Design's network now reaches 80 percent of Myanmar's rural population, helping 2.5 million people generate approximately US$54 million in additional income since 2005.
