Namkerngkao Group'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 his family can have access to safe drinking water.

Namkerngkao Group's story

Maisawan understands the difference the water filter can make for his family and for his group’s families. He knows that local water sources require boiling before consumption and boiling water consumes natural and financial resources. The water filter Maisawan purchased will increase his family’s disposable income by substantially decreasing money spent to buy charcoal or decreasing the time and cost foraging for firewood. The filter also eliminates the need to purchase bottled water if it is available.

Maisawan is excited that the filter was purchased on an affordable payment schedule and the filter is guaranteed for four years so he and his group can continue to receive the many benefits of clean water for many months to come.
