Solange'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.

Solange's story

Solange has been operating a Jibu franchise for the last three years and has grown the market. Many people in her neighborhood drink safe drinking water because of her, She also has employed five people in her franchise and their lives have changed. Her biggest challenge now is supplying water to places that are far from her franchise. She hires a delivery van and it is quite expensive for her. A loan will allow her to purchase a delivery van that will supply all her customers and also find new customers that she could not reach before.
