iDE Bangladesh was established in 1984 as the first country project of International Development Enterprises (iDE). iDE is an international nonprofit organization that creates income and livelihood opportunities for poor, rural households. iDE is devoted to the manufacture, marketing and distribution of affordable, scalable micro-irrigation and low-cost water recovery systems. iDE facilitates local manufacture and distribution of these products through local supply chains that sell to farmers at an affordable price which they can repay in one growing season. This strategy allows farmers to grow higher value and surplus crops, and links them to high-value crop markets.
