Sectors

The BoP is very complex. In order to simplify ways to get involved, we have divided the area into 3 sectors; Wellness, Energy and Housing.

WELLNESS

Wellness (including food/beverages, health, personal care, and water/sanitation) constitutes more than 45% of the BoP’s total spending; yet things like fresh, nutritious food, sanitary products, medical care, and even clean water are costly and difficult to access. BoP Hub is working to improve health, prevent illness, and promote general wellness at the BoP by improving access to high-quality essential services and goods.

ENERGY

Energy comprises roughly 5% of the BoP’s total spending; yet much of what is available in the current market is not safe, fuel-efficient, or eco-friendly. BoP Hub is working to improve access to safe, affordable, alternative energy such as solar lights and clean cook stoves.

HOUSING

Housing comprises more than 10% of the BoP’s total spending; yet much of what is available in the current market is remote, inadequate or unsafe. BoP Hub is working to improve access to safe and affordable housing for those at the base of the pyramid.
