Tieng'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.


Tieng's story

Tieng, along with other villagers participated in a village meeting. In the meeting, Tieng became excited to learn that a water filter was available on an affordable, payment plan.

The meeting participants also discussed the costs of treating local water supplies with charcoal and firewood.

Each of participants even discussed the cost of buying bottled water.

The water filter Tieng purchased is guaranteed for 4 years but is known to function for up to 5 years.

Tieng also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne disease. And after totaling up the costs, Tieng recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have.
