9 CHOTUKOOL FRIDGE ² A GODREJ PRODUCT (INDIA) SMALL FRIDGE CHEAP PRODUCT PORTABLE FRIDGE DESIGNED FOR INDIAN RURAL AREAS (where electricity no available most of the time)

10 NIRMA (India) Low priced detergent Reduction Of Smaller Quality Packaging

11 CASAS BAHIA (Brazil) RETAIL CHAIN TOP QUALITY BRANDS PRODUCTS MADE AVAILABLE TO BOP CONSUMERS PARTICULARLY BY PROVIDING FINANCIAL CREDIT

12 Danone Reduce poverty and malnutrition in Bangladesh through the provision of affordable and healthy nutrition supplied via a business model which incorporates resources from local communities WITH Building of a low cost production facility in Bogra. Development of new types of yogurts fortified with important nutrients lacking in the local diet Development of two networks : Dairy farmers who supply milk to the plan Sales ladies who visit customers door to door Funding: Danone created the «Danone communities» fund, dedicated to social ventures, open to all investors

13 Cemex Patrimonio Hoy Cemex observed that low income populations in Mexico were spending their week ends extending their homes, one room at a time, and that they were unhappy with building material sellers (low quality products sold at a high price). Cemex launched the Patrimonio Hoy ( Assets now *) program (2008) Targetting Do it yourself market Breakthrough: innovative business processes, rather than technology based products Micro financing program Promotores : community members making door to door calls Cycles of ten week programs : first two weeks : consumers save money distributors deliver the raw materials, valued at their ten weeks worth of collection during the eight following weeks, the program members reimburse the loan

14 AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES Growing local incomes and globalization are two basic trends affecting the BOP and creating attractive growth opportunities, particularly for SMEs. Not only can SMEs benefit the most from growing local demand by offering goods and services geared to the specific needs of huge numbers of customers at the base of the pyramid, but globalization is facilitating efforts to set up production in BOP markets, giving rise to a wide range of business opportunities. Above all, this is creating interesting opportunities for SMEs to expand, either by producing goods and services themselves or by supplying multinational companies. Another way of helping BOP markets : support to small business and local small and medium enterprises
