Abdurrahman's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to obtain 12 water purifiers to sell to his neighbours providing them with safe drinking water.

Abdurrahman's story

Mr Abdurrahman is the father of two children and lives in Palembang, Sumatera Selatan.

In Indonesia, like in many other developing nations, you need to treat water before you can drink it. For that reason, most inhabitants of Indonesia boil the water before they drink it. Or, if they have the money, they buy bottled water. Mr Abdurrahman heard of a new option for disinfecting water when the promotion crew from Nazava Water Filters held a safe water training in his vicinity. Nazava Water Filters filter well, rain, and city water so it becomes safe to drink without boiling, and without using fuel or electricity.

He has a large regional network and took the opportunity and became the reseller of Nazava in his area. This is the first time Mr Abdurrahman applies for a loan.

This loan will allow Mr Abdurrahman to buy 12 filters and sell them on consignment to his community, making safe drinking water available to 60 people.
