Jlg-002-Karupathur Group's story

Umadevi is a mother of three children. She lives in Kulithalai, Tamil Nadu with her family. She is concerned about the health of her family. They have no access to toilets, and they therefore have to resort to open defecation using the false privacy of nearby fields and surrounding shrubbery. This puts them at risk of infection, molestation or attack, and even insect or animal bites.

Seeking to improve her situation, she formed a group with women who face the same problem and applied for a loan of 42,000 INR to build toilets in their homes. Your loan will help these three hardworking, rural Indian families to have access to basic sanitation, and consequently, safety, improved health, medical savings, and improved productivity.
