Phoukham 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 she can have access to safe drinking water.
Phoukham Group's story
Kongherr’s village sources much of the drinking water from local wells, streams, and collected rainwater. These sources of water are not safe to drink without treatment by boiling. Kongherr and her group are excited that the filter was available on a payment plan that made it much more affordable. Treating drinking water requires cash and time, which now she can shift to other pursuits. Kongherr and her village also understands the impact unsafe drinking water has on their family’s budgets. The filter is guaranteed for two years; within this two years, filter users, like Kongherr’s family, identify a substantial decrease in illness and associated medical costs.
