In Malawi, people in the rural communities are using cards to get water from water kiosks which at first were being operated by kiosk operators. The innovation has eliminated a number of challenges including high cost of operation, integrity and time. The innovation is called "intelligent tap" (Itap) because the taps have been automated allowing each user to have a self and safe transaction when buying water from a kiosk.
