Nongkham 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.

Nongkham Group's story

Bounsing 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 four years.

Similarly, the cost of medical care for waterborne disease was spoken about.

The water filter Bounsing and his group purchased is guaranteed for 4 years but is known to function for up to 5 years.

Bounsing was excited to learn the filter was available on an affordable, payment plan 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.
