A loan helped to purchase TerraClear water filters so he can have access to safe drinking water.

Nakham Group's story

Chanong’s village sources much of their drinking water from local wells, streams, and collected rainwater. These sources of water are not safe to drink without treatment by boiling.

Chanong and his group are excited that the filter was available on a payment plan that made it much more affordable. Treating drinking water requires cash and time, which he can now shift to other pursuits. Chanong and his village also understand the impact unsafe drinking water has on their families' budgets. The filter is guaranteed for four years; within this four years, filter users, like Chanong’s family, identify a substantial decrease in illness and associated medical costs.
