Phoxaikhoun Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase TerraClear water filters so they can have access to safe drinking water.
Phoxaikhoun Group's story
Phou and her group, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting where they discussed the costs of treating local water supplies. Charcoal, firewood, and even bottled water were discussed and priced out over 2 years. Phou and her group also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne disease, and after totaling up the costs, Phou and her group recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have for them and their families. The water filter Phou and her group purchased is guaranteed for 2 years but is known to function for up to 5 years. Phou is excited the filter was available on an affordable payment plan.
