Within the framework of our 2 years project about social entrepreneurship and inclusive business in the secteur of water and energy, we've met some social entrepreneurs in India: Husk Power System (biomass gasification), Selco India (SHS), ONergy (SHS), Sarvajal (Kiosk for drinking water, Simpa Network (clean energy through mobile payment). For each one of them, we're writing a case study.

As Simpa Networks operates in the field of mobile payment, I thought it could interest some of you to have a look at this basic case study :  http://www.sevea-asso.org/wa_files/Case_20study_20Simpa.pdf

Hope you'll find these information interesting :)
