About the producer Paul Polak

PAUL POLAK is Founder and CEO of Windhorse International, a for-profit social venture with the mission of revolutionizing how companies design, price, market and distribute products to benefit the 2.7 billion customers living on less than $2 a day. Drawing from his 23 years of experience in psychiatry, Paul has helped thousands of farmers in countries around the world to design and produce low–cost, income–generating products, elevating more than 20 million people from poverty. Paul spent time “walking with farmers through their one-acre farms and enjoying a cup of tea with their families” to better understand their needs. Paul’s ability to respond with innovative solutions–such as the $25 treadle pump and small farm drip–irrigation systems starting at $3—helped IDE increase poor farmers’ net income by $288 million annually.
