Stefanus's story

Mr. Stefanus is the father of 2 children and lives in Bangka Belitung Laut, Pontianak, West Borneo.

In Indonesia, you cannot drink city water and most people don't even have access to piped water. For that reason, most inhabitants of Indonesians boil the water before they drink it. Or, if they have the money, they buy bottled water.

That is why Mr Stefanus started selling Nazava Water Filters 5 years ago. These filters turn dirty water into water that is ready to drink without electricity or the need to boil it. This is the eleventh time Mr Stefanus applies for a loan. He has an excellent record of repaying his loans.

Mr. Stefanus has entered some new areas last months as he told us: "We are grateful that in the past few months we have been able to sell in areas where no one has ever used Nazava products. We sell through group sales presentations. The community was very interested and there are already several families who use a Nazava purifier in that area. We continue to promote water filters. The presence of the Nazava filter greatly helped the West Kalimantan community."

This loan will allow Mr Stefanus to buy 372 filters to sell them to his community making safe drinking water available to 1,860 people.
