More information about this loan

This loan supports the purchase of a Safe Water System for a school located near urban areas in Uganda. The water treatment system will increase access to safe water for students, reduce the cost burden of fuels used to boil and sanitize water, and help people adopt healthier sanitation practices. This loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit. The loan repayments are tied to the start of the school term, which is the time when schools have the highest cash flow as a result of school fees. By supporting this loan, you’re helping school children and teachers access safe water.
