Marie Rose's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a delivery van to reach more customers who could not previously afford clean drinking water.

Marie Rose's story

Marie Rose has been a Jibu franchise owner for two years now, She has done a good job making sure in her neighborhood people get safe drinking water. She also successfully repaid her first loan, which she used to buy refillable bottles so that even those that can't afford the price of a bottle can get it on a loan and pay in installments.

She still faces a challenge of delivery for customers that are far from her franchise, because she has no means of transport. A loan will allow her to purchase a delivery van that will supply to new customers that were not able to access safe drinking water before.
