A loan helped to obtain 60 water filters to sell to her fellow villagers, providing them with safe drinking water.

Ratnawati's story

Ratnawati is the mother of two children and lives in Dampit, Malang Regency on Java Island in Indonesia, one of the most populous places in the world.

In Indonesia, you cannot drink from the tap and most people don't even have a tap. Unsurprisingly, most Indonesians boil the water before they drink it. Some people also buy water from refill stations, which is not always safe. At a community gathering, where the outreach team from Nazava was invited, Ratnawati learnt about an easier and better way of getting safe drinking water. Nazava Water Filters filter well, rain, and city water so it becomes safe to drink without boiling, or using fuel or electricity.

Ratnawati. who fulfills a leading function in her neighborhood, seized the opportunity and became the sales representative of Nazava in her area. This is the seventh time Mrs Ratnawati has applied for a loan. She has an excellent record in repaying her loans.

This loan will allow Ratnawati to buy 60 filters and sell them on credit to her community, making safe drinking water available to 300 people.
