In 2016, high inflation and increasing variable costs forced Safe Water Network to increase prices at most of its H2OME! Water Stations in Ghana, which consequently reduced consumer purchases, particularly among low-income households, which experienced a 26% decrease in consumption. However, after 15 months, station volumes began to recover, as HHCs improved consumer resiliency and socio-economic status.

Convenience of Household Connections Attributed to Resiliency of Consumers

According to the report, household connection volumes increased as onsite purchases decreased, pointing to a clear connection between convenience and resiliency.
