Kabao 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 in order to have access to safe drinking water.

Kabao Group's story

Vong’s village sources much of their drinking water from local wells, streams, and collected rainwater. These sources of water are not safe to drink without treatment by boiling. Vong and his 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 he can shift to other pursuits. Vong and his village also understand the impact that unsafe drinking water has on their family’s budgets. The filter is guaranteed for two years; within this two years, filter users, like Vong’s family, identify a substantial decrease in illness and associated medical costs.
