Low cost electric generator

Question

Do anyone have any idea on what kind of low cost electricity generator out there expect solar powered, hydro powered, wind powered and fuel powered generator.

I am doing a project on a topic of 'low cost laundry and showering system' for a rural village in Sarawak, Malaysia. The village is 350m away from a river called " Sungai Sebatu". I was deciding to use a millwheel to generate electricity for water pump to get water fill into a water tank which is at 5 meter high from ground. However, the river was then found to be almost standing-still with a minimum flowing speed. Your helping hand will be appreciated.

You might want to consider an animal powered drive. I'm thinking of a horse or mule walking in a circle or something similar.
