MRDP Sunwater promotes an efﬁcient, easy-to-handle, low-maintenance passive water-heating system through various marketing channels. It also uses feedback on pilot systems from community members to identify potential entrepreneurs who can promote the concept. In addition, MRDP provides support, training and assistance to these entrepreneurs, encouraging them to set up their own businesses. This includes providing practical exercises in business management, training in bookkeeping, technical training, planning and monitoring, and all other aspects of project-cycle management.
