  • For the micro-financial impact, another way to view impact is to see how increased capital (x) and labor (L) increases quality of life (Q)
  •  1) Nomadic power supply---> nimble "utility" model, PPA mechanism for the udyami.  We take profits from the service of the "rental", look at other more traditional PPAs and then micronize 2) Profits on the differential between price of SynchStore items wholesale and retail (we can perhaps augment in the best case scenario by dramatically reducing the CPU on health items if we get AID/Govt/Foundations to augment). 3)  Profits on the fees for health screening services. Since this is a franchise model, we have to figure out overall profits and then how that will play out between ourselves and franchise owners.  Banking is not part off the profit model, or if it is it is just an additional marketing payment we will collect from our banking partner at this stage....For the SE Store we would use a drop shipping solution and there would be no cost, apart from operating/ updating the site, until a transaction is in place

    • 21. Our Credit Processes ”Grameen” ”Non-Grameen” Debtors guarantee each other Debtors DO NOT guarantee each other Default rate can be brought close to zero Default rate will stay much higher, up to 30% Interest rate can be brought down if lending volume can be scaled up (interest income will cover loan officers’ salaries) Will have to price at maximum interest rate (26%) Social fabric will be destroyed in event of defaults (case Andhra Pradesh) Social fabric will be spared in event of defaults We can offer both models. Our debtors’ IRR will be much higher than 26% as the assets whose purchase we finance are extremely productive assets. • Use of existing microfinance IT platforms such as M2 in the pilot to reduce operational risk • Access to funding from American and European banks and funds • In the microfinance industry 90% of lending goes to finance consumption  This cannot support high interest rates  Our model is vendor finance  Financing only productive assets  Excellent IRR for debtor, can support interest rates  Cutting edge environmental and health technology • Flexibility in our credit processes
