Sobhia Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase water filters so they can have access to safe drinking water.
Sobhia Group's story
Boun is excited that a water filter was available on an affordable payment plan. She 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 two years. The water filters that Boun and her group decided to buy are guaranteed for two years but are known to function for up to five years. Boun and her group also discussed the cost of medical care for water-borne disease. After totaling up the costs, Boun and her group recognized the substantial financial savings the water filter will have for them and their families.
