Super MoneyMaker Pump, 1998

This is a Project. It was designed by Robert Hyde, Martin Fisher, Mark Butcher, and Adblikadir Musa and manufactured by KickStart International. It is dated 1998. Its medium is mild steel, pvc, rubber.

The Super MoneyMaker Pump is a manual treadle pump that will direct water to where it is needed, pulling water from a depth of seven meters, no fuel or electricity required. Households have started profitable small farm businesses using pumps to irrigate their fruits and vegetables during the dry season. By greatly increasing the yield, growing higher-value crops, and growing year round, these families have increased their net farm income from $110 to $1,100 per year—lifting themselves out of poverty.
