Asociación El Comején Group's story
The Committee for Potable Water with ASODECCOM is located in the department of Masaya. The Committee has been operating a community well for more than seven years. It supplies the rural community of Comején No. 2 with potable water for 710 families, as well as the community's schools and churches, more than 3,500 users. The community is currently undersupplied, because the submersible pump isn't working to capacity. This means people in the community have to travel long distances to buy much more expensive water, with an increased risk of contracting illnesses. The Committee is seeking a loan for the purchase and installation of a new pump and control panel that will allow the restoration of potable water to the community.
