More information about this loan

This loan will help fund a new product Fundación Paraguaya has launched called "Ikatu Agua" that will enable people in remote communities to dig wells, build pipelines and install water meters to expand access to clean drinking water. Loans like these are given to sanitation boards, which represent their entire communities. These groups contract builders and oversee construction of water distribution systems, while collecting repayments from impacted community members. These repayments are pooled and returned to Kiva to be credited to lenders.
