Total loan: $125


Laos, , Lao PDR / Personal Use

Sivai'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 to have access to safe drinking water.

Sivai's story

Sivai, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting where they discussed the costs of treating local water supplies. Charcoal, firewood, and even bottled water were discussed and priced out over four years. Sivai also discussed the cost of medical care for waterborne disease. And after totaling up the costs, Sivai recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have.

The water filter Sivai purchased is guaranteed for four years but is known to function for up to five years. Sivai is excited the filter was available on an affordable payment plan.
