A loan helped to purchase TerraClear water filters so they can have access to safe drinking water.

Lerk Group's story

Vieng understands the difference the water filter can make for her family and for her group’s families. Vieng knows that local water sources require boiling before consumption and boiling water consumes natural and financial resources. The water filter Vieng purchased will increase her family’s disposable income by substantially decreasing money spent to buy charcoal or decreasing the time and cost foraging for firewood. The filter also eliminates the need to purchase bottled water if it is available. Vieng is excited that the filter was purchased on an affordable payment schedule and the filter is guaranteed for 2 years – so she and her group can continue to receive the many benefits of clean water for many months to come.
