Longly'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 so he can have access to safe drinking water.

Longly's story

Longly was excited to learn that a water filter is available on an affordable payment plan. He and other villagers participated in a village meeting where they discussed the cost of treating local water supplies. Charcoal, firewood, and even bottled water were discussed and priced out over a four-year period.

The water filter that Longly purchased is guaranteed for four years, but is known to function for up to five years. He also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne illnesses. After totaling up these costs, Longly recognized the substantial financial savings that the water filter will have.
