More information about this loan
This loan product will enable households to buy a ceramic water filter that will ensure their health by providing sustained access to safe drinking water. It will also reduce the time and money they spend collecting fuel and/or boiling water to drink. The iDE staff provides training to households so that they are educated in safe hygiene practices and the importance of drinking safe water – particularly for young children who are most vulnerable to waterborne diseases.
This loan product was initially developed in partnership with local microfinance institutions (partnerships which continue), however, iDE determined it could reach more households in need by managing their own credit program. Since lending is not their core business, this loan may carry more risk.
