The bottom of the pyramid has been the topic of many research articles and scholarly discussions. Since Prahalad and Hart wrote about how multinationals can help alleviate poverty and create value propositions for themselves in 2004, many companies have been looking at strategies to serve the BOP segment in emerging markets. While an equally good number of companies have invested a lot of money in these markets and have failed, only a small minority of corporations that have engaged with the BOP sector have created businesses of high volume and profitability. This paper examines through review of the literature, the impact of branding on people living on less than $2 per day and then what how of reaching these customers in a profitable manner for corporations.
