A loan of $1,450 helped a member to purchase a TerraClear water filter, so they can have access to safe drinking water.


Poungving Group's story

Khamphan and his group, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting. In the meeting Khamphan became excited, upon learning that the water filter was available on an affordable payment plan.

The meeting participants also discussed the costs of treating local water supplies, by heating the water with charcoal and firewood. Each of the participants even discussed the cost of buying bottled water. Khamphan and his group also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne diseases. The water filters Khamphan and his group purchased are guaranteed for four years, but filters have been known to function for up to five years. And after totaling up the costs, Khamphan and his group recognized the substantial financial savings the water filters will produce, for them and their families.

In this group: Khamphan, Bounthone, Aoun, Khamdee, San, Chansouk, Maiman, Saiya, Pheng, Ohnkham, Lar, Tai, Buavan
