Moneymaker Block Press

Problem to be solved: Block Making a Business

Farmers are used to putting their money in the ground for short periods while they wait for the
harvest. A payback period of one to two years will be unacceptable to them and so it is unacceptable
to KickStart. This Block press is a business model created by farmers’ needs.

Impact:

The press makes strong and durable building blocks from soil mixed with a small percentage of
cement, compressed at high pressure and cured for ten days. Five to eight workers can produce
400 to 800 blocks a day using the press.
