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

A loan helped to purchase refillable bottle inventory for reaching more household customers.

Bernard's story

Bernard worked at one of the largest mass-produced soda manufacturers in the world. He first saw Jibu water at a co-workers house and was drawn to the mission of providing clean, affordable water to his local community in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Bernard’s dream was to operate his own franchise to produce the water himself and reach even more customers. Bernard employs a team of young and dedicated people who are uncovering a strong demand for safe and affordable water in the community. A loan will allow Bernard to scale his business and reach more customers with the purchase of refillable bottle inventory. This will save him from having to build up a capital base from his own profits, which would slow his potential for growth. The loan will be repaid from his profits, with all payments projected to be made as scheduled.
