Jackson'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.

Jackson's story

Jackson is a passionate franchisee, who has always worked hard to take care of his family. He grew his business tremendously and opened many retailers to make it easy for customers far from his franchise. His biggest challenge right now is delivery. It is too expensive to hire a delivery van and for some retailers that pay for the delivery, they put Jibu water at a higher price. A loan will allow him to purchase a delivery van that will deliver to the retailers and find new customers that did not have access to safe drinking water.
