The kiosk cost us 1500$ but we don't sale it to the micro franchisee, we are a platform as a service therefore we recruit train and monitor the kiosk operator that work on the kiosk for a revenue sharing agreement and pay a small leasing fee per month to cover the maintenance cost or insurance of the kiosk. We own the infrastructure. However we work with partners that want to build a similar smart network in their countries. So they buy the kiosk and lease the software and app systems that control the kiosk and help you monitor the whole business. I hope that make sense. We have an detail explanation of our partnership program on our website. a-r-e-d.com/partnership I hope that answer your question.

We posted some video of interviews of some of our micro franchisees please visit http://www.dw.com/en/mobile-power-to-bring-rwandas-remote-regions-into-the-future/a-39041739
