but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

Mulagi Girls S School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Ogwado. He is the deputy headteacher of Mulagi Girls Secondary School, a mixed school in the rural area of Butaleja with 600 students.

Mulagi School has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining a UV water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students. The school does not currently have access to consistent clean drinking water and therefore has to spend a considerable portion of its budget on firewood, which is used to boil water for the children. Installing a water filtration system will therefore save the school money in the long-term because the cost of firewood will be reduced. The loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 450 liter tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Mulagi School will repay its loan from school fees, which it collects each term. Ogwado ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his student’s concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children who fall sick from waterborne diseases as well as increasing the number of students coming to the school.
