CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM & OUR MISSION:
Our mission is to be the best in the world in micro hydro electric and water resource management: by evolving innovative damless hydroelectric and water transfer technology. We create Today’s Tall Tree Nurseries to support Micro Finance for women farmers and their families using the Carbon Tax Fund, a new form of foreign aid. We export Mechanization into Africa for more productive agriculture. We do all this under the umbrella of Conscious Capitalism.
Africa is most affected by businesses than any other social organizations, bringing people together to help other people and bringing value and food for Africans – not entirely for profit but a by-product of a higher purpose.
Conscious businesses are a better way to do business. It will start slowly like a small path in the forest with a local cluster, but it will expand to a broad highway, because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Partners of conscious businesses are dedicated to the company’s purposes. Our children and grandchildren will flourish in ways that we cannot imagine.
“Business as usual” will not succeed: we need a new paradigm for business: a conscious business, which have four tenets:
- A higher purpose of caring: why our business exists and why you were born
- Harmonious Integration of all stakeholders: including landlords, suppliers, the community and the environment. We wish to build partnerships that share our common purpose.
- Conscious Leadership: motivated by the firm’s higher purpose.
- Conscious Culture: to innovate continually
Living Water MicroFinance Inc. is a heroic conscious business because it creates value and lifts Africans out of their poverty, creates stability for the family and helps build communities with technical schooling. Not by crony capitalism where the select few use the coercive power of government for their advantage.
Living Water MicroFinance’s Purpose
- to evolve a more sustainable and efficient agricultural system using micro finance
- to raise awareness of healthy eating
- to help end poverty using irrigation and electricity
- to make Conscious Business a dominant economic system
It is socially irresponsible to run a business that does not consistently generate profits, yet these are not the primary goals.
Africans feel more fulfilled when their work is more aligned with their passion: to help fellow Africans. Positions become available and careers are created through the collective intelligence of teamwork, where creative ideas of individuals are bounced around the team and get improved.
Plato discovered his ideals: the Good (service to others); the True (furthering human knowledge) and the Beautiful (excellence and the creation of beauty). We add a fourth: the Heroic (the courage to do the right thing to change and improve the world greater than most would think possible.
Living Water Microfinance Conscious Capitalism
Leadership matters a great deal—especially spiritually and emotionally mature leaders. Leadership is mostly about change, innovation and transformation. Managers do not make history, but conscious leaders do: they motivate others to share in their dream with a sense of urgency. Conscious Leaders commonly have high analytical, emotional, and spiritual intelligence. Individual are empowered to make decisions which encourage creativity and innovation and a creation of greater value and enhanced efficiency in Africa which is not well known for competence. These individuals begin to commit themselves with their whole heart to do what they most love and what is meaningful in life for them.
Living Water Microfinance Compensation
There is total transparency as to compensation: everyone knows what everyone is making. When a team increases productivity, everyone on the team shares in the bonuses. The total compensation including bonuses of any team members is capped at nineteen times the average pay of all the team members. Some other companies have unrealistic ratios of 400 to 500 times.
Past a certain point, it isn’t healthy to want more. This salary cap attracts the right type of people: those who care more about the purpose of the company than personal gain or power. The leadership team decides what percentage of this overall salary should be devoted to benefits.
The first challenge most businesses face is inadequate capital. Without capital or funding, most businesses could not ever reach their full potential—to grow and to innovate.The company has a fiduciary responsibility to make money for investors, but only to the amount of their investment. We ask investors to commit on the long run in order for the company to fulfill their purpose, just as they would commit to their own family. This funding is superior to charity because 100% can be returned in the long run unlike a 30% tax credit. There is an alternative part of the fund which is treated as charity for tax purposes. This part of the fund is returned to the donor in the form of a funded safari and/or mission.
In fact, the conscious business of Living Water Microfinance Inc. promises superior long term results, because of its rich potential: Carbon Tax funding for unlimited tree seedlings on unlimited land with fertilizing techniques, irrigation and electricity – supported by micro finance for women farmers who manage new fruit and nut trees for the tree’s lifetime.
Living Water Microfinance Global Citizenship
The best way to alleviate poverty in a community is to introduce micro lending. The average loan is $133 and over 90% of the loans are made to women farmers. The money is recycled back and is loaned out again and again; it stays permanently in the community.
The Environment as a Stakeholder
While we hear adults talking about local interests and national priorities, we are leaving a planet which has become worse and worse for our future children and grandchildren. Earth cannot sustain another traumatic round of undisciplined growth, a repeat of what started with the first Industrial Revolution. Unfortunately, to an alarming extent, this economic growth continues unabated.
The environment is the only silent partner. We are all part of the environment. We live in it and it affects us and we affect it with our carbon footprint. We need to safeguard and nurture our common environment for future generations – and not to exploit it on the short term.
There is a strong case for carbon credits support for forests instead of pastures. There is now 40% more wood in US forest than there were 50 years ago. Because of the increased forest cover, some scientists believe that the United States absorbs as much carbon emissions as they emit.
The first step is to partner with other stakeholder like current businesses and NGOs that already have a good track record. The future is still in our hands.
Monsoon climates typically have two distinct seasons: wet and dry. Information about when and where the monsoon will arrive is important for farmers, especially as almost two-thirds of India’s fields lack irrigation systems. The complexity of climate systems makes forecasting the monsoon tough. It is erratic anyway: four years in every ten, it is abnormal. Furthermore, humans are changing the environment. Clearing forest and vegetation means less water is stored in the land, for example. Air pollution is a huge problem, too, much of it caused by cooking at home.
The Irrigation System & Carbon Tax Fund
Right now deforestation is causing 15% – 25% of the problem of global warming. The carbon dioxide capture of the trees addresses global warming, so the Carbon Tax Fund will support any forestation.
The land may be owned by a landlord, who may wish to become a partner in the irrigation system. The landlord must agree to parcel one quarter of his land to be subleased to women farmers and her family upon agreement to maintain the trees over 50 years for a nominal rent.
Each individual farmer has a stake in protecting these productive trees. The women farmers receive micro finance assistance to continue to increase the production of the land in the form of seed, fertilizer, chickens and fish hatcheries. The women farmers are also supported by their Christian community with weekly democratic meetings supported by a pastor or a priest.
The remaining land is partnered with Living Water Is Corporation, a conscious business,that will hold 51% control of the remaining land in exchange for providing irrigation and eventual electricity. The orchards provide income to the women farmers and their families from the fruit, nuts or palm oil. The foliage trees support the animals on the farm.
The carbon tax fund receives a guarantee by a third party, Living Water Is Corporation, to complete Phase 1 and 2 and to maintain all the orchard and foliage trees over 50 years with 5 year audited reports. The government of the African country can also help with agronomist support.
The best time to plant NUT TREES was 20 years ago
THE SECOND BEST TIME IS NOW
- A tree maintained over 25 years has a Net Present Value of $0.49/tree based on its capture of carbon dioxide over this lifetime.
- The cost to grow and plant trees in Africa over the long run is another $1.00/tree: additional cost of maintenance: weeding, pruning, mulching, slashing, care against disease and infestations:
- With the support from the Carbon Tax Fund, the Tree Farm is scalable to produce over 1,000,000 trees in a short time.
Together the rabbit farming and fish farming introduce inexpensive fertilizer for the tree nursery. Living Water Microfinance Inc. supports rabbit fish colony farming. Rabbit Farming does not need large tracks of land. According to an FAO Report:
- 30% of the world land is used by livestock pasture.
- 33% of all grains are fed to livestock
- 70% of all soy beans is fed to livestock
- 70% of all deforestation is used by livestock
- 33% of all water pollution is caused by livestock production
- 18% of all greenhouse gases come from livestock.
One of the most sustainable forms of meat protein to farm is fish. For every pound of meat produced, fish consume less than 15% of the feed required by land animals such as cattle. Farmed fish are a staple not just for industrialized countries, but even more so for emerging nations of the world. Aquaculture is emerging as an important substitute for wild fish whose stocks are being depleted at an alarming rate.
The survival of the human race in the next millennium will be tied to the success in managing fresh water.
The failure by government to provide water through irrigation projects has been cited as one of the biggest bottlenecks small scale farmers are facing.
LIVING WATER FOR LIFE
Water is at the core of sustainable development. Water and economic development are closely associated. A water-secure world is more than a goal unto itself. It is a critical and necessary step towards a sustainable future. Water is a central pillar of sustainable economic growth.
GLUT OF CARBON DIOXIDE TACKLED
According to a 2011 report, somewhere between 52%-65% of green house gases are carbon from fossil fuels, and 15% resulting from deforestation. Yet, how else can we help rid ourselves of the glut of C02?
We sell agroforestry to the African farmer as adaption first and mitigation as a bonus.
HELPING SOLVE WORLD’S CARBON POLLUTION
New Trees are the only solution to soaking up Carbon Dioxide:
Our Mission: to help solve the problem of carbon dioxide build up in the world by growing and managing mature forests of foliage, fruit and nut trees that eventually are used in lumber — not firewood. The Carbon Tax Fund supports a Micro finance initiative to support women farmers and their families who will nurture these trees over their lifetime. The Net Present Value of each tree is $0.49/tree
Let us analyze the average of ten polluting power plant: 20 million tons/year. In 10- 15 years it will be polluting at the rate of 200 (20 x 10 years) to 300 (20 x 15 years) million tons/year. During the same period of time our agroforest will soak up: 1.09 billion to 1.5 billion tons CO2 emissions. That translates into allowing 5 to 5.5 polluting power plants in the United States to adjust to more sustainable power systems over 10 – 15 years. We can identify ten landscapes for our agroforest efforts, which will address 50 to 55 polluting power plants.

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
