Chantai Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

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

Chantai Group's story

Thongsy’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 or other method. Thongsy and his group are excited that the water filter is available on a payment plan, which makes it much more affordable. Treating drinking water requires cash and time, which now he can shift to other pursuits. Thongsy and his village also understand the impact unsafe drinking water has on their families' budgets. The filter is guaranteed for four years. Within this four-year period, filter users like Thongsy’s family identify a substantial decrease in illness and associated medical costs.
