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

A loan helped to purchase TerraClear water filters so they can have access to safe drinking water.

Nam Phao Group's story

Pantem and his group, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting. In the meeting, Pantem became excited to learn that the filter was available on an affordable payment plan. The meeting participants also discussed the costs of treating local water supplies with charcoal and firewood. Each of the participants also discussed the cost of buying bottled water.

The water filter Pantem and his group purchased is guaranteed for 4 years but is known to function for up to 5 years. Pantem and his group also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne disease. After totaling up the costs, Pantem and his group recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have for them and their families.
