  7. 7. THE CHALLENGE Because access to electrical power is scarce, Burundian mobile phone users spend up to 25% of their income just on charging their phones. Reducing this expense can have enormous impact in such a resource-constrained environment.
  8. 8. Introduction
  9. 9. NOUS ENSEMBLE (we all) entrepreneurship project is a collaborative which brings accessible and affordable mobile phone charging to villages.

  25. 25. TELECOMS SMS Marketing Service Reduced Fees National Telecoms notify their mobile customers when a new Nous Ensemble business opens in their area. Telecoms will provide reduced fees for Nous Ensemble transactions in exchange for increased usage of their network and services by customers.
  26. 26. MOBILE MONEY SYSTEM Mobile Money Leo™ —a mobile money transfer platform pilot in Burundi — is off to a promising start. Users are expected to increase by 400% by year’s end. The availability of this platform will make it easier for customers to pay business owners and make loan repayment more convenient for the business owners.
  27. 27. MOBILE MONEY SYSTEM Data Collection The transactions conducted using this platform can be collected as aggregate data to provide clearer information on phone usage patterns for both the telecoms and UNICEF.
  28. 28. MICROFINANCE Local Donors Investment Options The mobile money platform allows Nous Ensemble to broaden their microfinancier base to include local donors. Burundians will be able to make small investments in fellow Burundians. Investors will be able to choose between providing no-interest loans or making a small return on their investment.

  32. 32. CHRIS SAYS: Pick 3 outcomes and make a slide for each with one or two bullet points (1) what can the end user get now that he is paying less for phone charging? (instead of just charging phone, now he can charge phone and ….send kid to school/buy solar lamp/etc - school costs abou $60/year - $10 fees, $40 uniforms $10 supplies) Weak telecommunications and transportation infrastructure force volunteers to travel long distances by foot over difficult terrain and rely solely on paper based reporting systems resulting in frequent information gaps and delays.
  33. 33. POTENTIAL IMPACT FOR COMMUNITIES Money saved AND money earned should be able to put at least one light into every household. This positively impacts child and adult education, the opportunity to do work/homework, therefore higher matriculation rate.
  34. 34. POTENTIAL IMPACT FOR COMMUNITIES This positively impacts several healthrelated issues (infant mortality, kerosene-related health issues, nonemergency medical treatment)
  35. 35. POTENTIAL IMPACT FOR COMMUNITIES This positively impacts women. Gives them the opportunity to have upper hand in family to make decisions and self confidence.
