In brief, concerning Area Mechanics…
It has been observed a progression since the beginning to reach almost 2 000 contracts a year in total (all AMs and all 5 districts included). Salima is the district where there is more interventions.
1 pump for 4 has been repaired or maintained by an Area Mechanic.

Except in Salima, which after a high peak there was a decrease, the purchases (and therefore the sales by the customers) have increased.
Same follow up but only for the year 2013 has been made by BASEDA and TIMMS:
Next post will summarizes the evolution in terms of profit for AM and shops…
