Namthoung Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a TerraClear water filter so he can have access to safe drinking water.

Namthoung Group's story

Maiphonenoy’s village sources much of their drinking water from local wells, streams, and collected rainwater. These sources of water are not safe to drink without treatment by boiling. Maiphonenoy and his group are excited that the filter was available on a payment plan that made it much more affordable. Treating drinking water requires cash and time, which now he can shift to other pursuits. Maiphonenoy and his village also understand the impact unsafe drinking water has on their family’s budgets. The filter is guaranteed for four years; within this four years filter users, like Maiphonenoy’s family, will identify a substantial decrease in illness and associated medical costs.
