A loan helped to improve sanitation facilities in her home by installing a toilet.

Chandra And Group's story

Chandra is from Kulithalai in rural Tamil Nadu and has no toilet in her home or in the immediate vicinity. Chandra's family is one of the millions affected by rural India's sanitation crisis. Joining hands with 5 others whose families all face similar problems due to a lack of sanitation facilities, Chandra has formed a group and is hoping to address this issue. Without access to a toilet, their families walk long distances to relieve themselves in the false privacy of dense bushes or isolated fields. These unsanitary practices make them vulnerable to infections, and the lack of privacy exposes them to molestation or worse.

Access to a toilet will mean privacy and peace of mind for Chandra and her family. It will also mean they no longer need to walk long distances, especially when they are sick. So, together, they seek a loan to build a toilet at home. Your loan will help these 5 hardworking rural Indian families to access basic sanitation, and consequently, safety, improved health, medical savings, and improved productivity.
