Social enterprises that serve the 2.5 billion people living on less than $2.50 per day are the focus of Ayllu’s iuMAP project.

Data gathered in developing countries worldwide is analyzed and distributed via the iuMAP project. The data assists with assessment of the market-based methods that social enterprise uses to address social and environmental challenges. The end result is the creation of social enterprise sustainable businesses, informed by uiMAP data and delivery of products and services including health care, lighting and potable water to the world’s poor.
