Narm Oou 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.
Narm Oou Group's story
Chankham and his group, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting where the cost of safe drinking water was discussed. In the meeting they discussed the costs of treating local water supplies. Charcoal, firewood, and even bottled water were discussed and priced out over 4 years. Similarly, the cost of medical care for water-borne disease was spoken about. The water filter Chankham and his group purchased is guaranteed for 4 years but is known to function for up to 5 years. Chankham was excited to learn the filter was available on an affordable, payment plan. Chankham and his group recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have for them and their families, as well as the impact safe water will have on their health.
